Because our plan is to homeschool Oceana - beginning this fall when she'll be in Kindergarten (Waahhhhhh! Wasn't I just peeing on a stick yesterday?!?!) - I decided TV before noon is a bad idea.
My plan of attack has always been "Let them watch TV in the morning when I'm not a nice person". But the problem is, the TV use went into a tail-spin and before we knew it, the TV was just staying on. o_O Ak!
So we're cutting down.
No TV before noon.
TV is primarily for during Naomi's naptime. This kills two bird with one stone. It's after lunchtime, and Naomi doesn't watch as much.
The secondary time is when I'm trying to get dinner ready and on the table.
I'm making a big effort to change the way we run our days around here.
And last of all --- TV is a privilege, not a right.
We're working on it!
Just thought I'd just hold myself accountable. :) And maybe inspire some of you to cut some of the TV-time at your house?
