Our kid - now 20 something asked us the other day what we thought was the best thing we did as parents. The question hadn't really been posed before but simultaneously and without hesitation we both responded "NO TV!"
I wish I could say it was all intentional but, really, the fucker broke and we were busy with new career, wife in grad school and all that shit. Initially it was procrastination but then seemed like a good thing so we just stuck with it until the kid was 13 or 14.
No TV was hands down the best parenting move we made. If you have any kids - throw the fucking things out - NOW...
DVD bullshite too...
