Lucy over at LULU PETALS wrote a piece earlier this week about TV and the influence it has on our lives. I think about what the kids are seeing and hearing on TV today and realize childhood as we knew it no longer exists. They have become miniature ‘adults’ with what they see and experience and I believe this creates a lot of the animosity that exists in families today. When I was a kid certain types of shows came on after I was in bed. We didn’t have 400 cable channels or TIVO or DVR’s where you could watch the reruns at any time of day. In fact I had to ask permission to turn on the TV! The sex, violence and controversial topics were shielded from kids. Our parents had actual control to protect our childhoods.
How do you control your child’s TV usage?
