It's TV Turnoff Week, and parents all over the country are shaking in their boots wondering what life without "screen time" will look, sound and feel like. I'm one of those parents. Compared to the national stats, we don't watch nearly as much TV as most families, but we do like our Wii, our Gameboy, and our hour or two per week of post-bedtime TiVo-based mindless entertainment (read: Lost and Battlestar Gallactica). Any "screen time" counts — it's more about unplugging than television, specifically.
We don't have a specific plan this week, but I do intend to talk to the kids about why TV Turnoff week exists. Do you plan to participate? If so, what's your plan?
