National Turn Off the TV Week
Add a Comment
It’s National Turn Off the TV Week (April 21-27)—which, I must say, nicely coincides with Earth Day to help save a little bit of energy. The goal is to turn off the tube for the week and spend a little more Q.T. together as a family. Maybe you can go for a hike like John suggested, or check out some other suggestions for turn-off activities. And then, when the week’s over, remember that TV is okay for kids over 2 as long as it’s in moderation. I like the concept of TV Time (pictured)—it’s a little kit that has 15-minute TV tickets, 2 movie passes, and an old-school sand hourglass for measuring time. It’s an easy way to keep track of how much screen time your little one is getting during the week. For $19.95, you could probably just get some construction paper and DIY, but if you’re down for the quick-fix, check it out.
