One of my goals as a parent is to reduce the amount of time we spend watching television. My kids and I are happier and more connected when the TV (and computer) are off and we spend time together reading, talking and adventuring.
Going tv-free cold turkey seems unrealistic for us. We still enjoy TV, but I'm serious about reducing our viewing. So I had the idea of starting gradually, and think that going TV free on Tuesdays and Thursdays would be an interesting challenge. I blogged about it here
Would you like to reduce your viewing time? What do you think of limiting TV in your family?
If you want to join in and try TV free Tuesdays and Thursdays, please comment and go for it. It's my goal to write about going TV free and occasionally feature other blogs with information and experiences about going TV free or limiting TV time. Most of all it's my goal to enjoy and experience family life more fully.
