Parenting 101 – Satellite TV is Like Liquor to Kids
So I’m not sure whether or not I’ve ruined my children or not. The jury is still out on that one. See, for a while the number of television channels we received at our house you could count on one hand. My wife works from home and for economic reasons we upgraded, which included satellite television. We went from basically nothing – to almost 200 channels. My kids don’t know what to do with themselves.
I’ll admit that I was excited to get it. This would mean I could watch more than just kids shows, game shows, reality shows and the news. Or does it? There’s nothing on. Or if there is something on, someone else wants to watch a different program. Luckily I’m getting this DVR thing down.
I’m still in the middle of a mass-blocking fit. My kids range in age from 3 to 13 but I don’t think any of them need to be searching channels and reading some of the adult channel titles (which are hilarious by the way) I can stunt their hormonal growth for a little longer if I wanna…right?
Do you have satellite and a bunch of kids? Got a ‘watching’ system that I don’t know about? Help me – on Facebook.
