I realize that the thought of just turning the television off in your home can be a terrifying concept. You might even imagine from your worst fears that the kids will join together to protest this earth-shattering idea. In addition to the hollering and name calling, you're bound to hear they might even hold the family dog ransom until the television is turned back on.

Truth be told, you might get some push back if you just turn the television off. Instead, you can simply start to offer the kids some other things to do besides watching television. Your kids want to have fun, play, imagine, laugh, explore and discover new things, just like you do. They are hungry for time together, and within no time they will be loving the four hours each day they too have just been given.
