Using your Television as a Chaperone
Well, maybe not a chaperone in the true sense of the word. Your television isn’t quite ready to escort your teenage kids to the high school dance, but for younger kids TV can be a great way of keeping those pesky young ones out from under foot.
Kids can learn so much more from the ‘boob tube’ anyways. When was the last time you brushed up on your knowledge of National Parks? How about those ‘five-dollar words’ some newscasters might work into their scoop of the day.
TV keeps kids current, and when there isn’t a live broadcast for children to tune into, why not hand them over a tablet or even your phone. I know there are apps to keep your cats happy, so there’s bound to be something to keep your kid completely engaged in anything other than the inane question of ‘How was your day?’
Maybe television can stir a little after dinner conversation…
