Average Television Viewing (2007 numbers)
Any wonder we are facing many of the issues that seem to overwhelm our society. Can 8+ hours a day of television viewing be a good thing? What are we thinking? I realize it is a quick and easy (and cheap) babysitter, but 8+ hours? What are we the parents doing during this time?
I know this is close to becoming a rant, but somethings get me a little agitated…especially when it comes to our children. C’mon parents, turn off the TV, pick up your child, and talk to them, or better yet, get down on the floor and play with them. Pull the cushions off the sofa and build a tunnel fort, or go into the bedroom and use the covers and sheets from the bed to build an elaborate space ship. Engage folks…it doesn’t have to brain surgery, just go have fun.
