I didn't buy them one and mine is only on at night to watch some silly program i like and theni turn it off because it heats the room and i dont like it , yet we get together to watch a movie in my room when we finish exercising , chores and homework early .I like them in bed by 9:30 P.M.

So i think maybe we are kind of busy.

We've just embarked on a new experiment in our house: technology free days. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, technology is off limits, unless you need to use the computer for homework assignments. Don't tell my son, but we got this idea when he was grounded for three weeks, no privileges. Don't ask, I'm not telling!!! We noticed how he was prone to be much more sociable, creative and kinder to his little brother (11). He read the entire Hunger Games trilogy and initiated family board game nights! All this from a 13 yr. old boy.

This is tough one sometimes. I have to admit.

I let my kids watch tv...but I have reduced it and now I only let them watch PBS. They are still young so I can.

Here are some things that I have down to cut back on screen time (tv, computer, etc)
*more board games are in our house
*more bike rides
*more books are read
*more outside time-we are at the parks at least once a day

It is hard. We are lucky enough to live within walking distance to many parks.

We save screen time for Friday night movies from the library. Games on the computer are limited to once a week. It was not always this way....Change is hard and slow!

NO MORE EXCUSES WITH TEN MINUTE WORKOUTS!
