The average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day, according to the A.C. Nielsen Co. In a 65-year life, that person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube.

So what happens when this “mean mom” says, “No” to TV during the day?
Relationships are solidified, creativity blossoms, and imaginative play dusts off it’s silent, lonely webs.

Yes, it’s a mess.
Yes, it creates more work.
Yes, their “territories” have been established (that’s what they told me was being done).

Yes to real life being lived regardless of the dust bunnies, carpet crud and dog hair. 😉

Now to just get them to clean up as soon as they are done. I’m still working on that one.

How often do you turn off the TV and let real life reign?
