Television Elimination

That someone has seen it fit to propose Four Arguments to Eliminate Television is rather affirming for me. I was already convinced. When J was an infant I did have a TV. I made her sit facing me, her back towards the screen when I watched something. After a while, that became her way of "watching" TV.

She played with her toys, climbed on me, gurgled and cooed while the boob tube spewed content to her back. For more than a year, we have not had a TV at home and I don't plan on changing that. Not having known the medium, J does not miss it and I don't for the lack of time. It is an arrangement that is working perfectly well for both of us.
