No TV Zone

I’ve declared my house a No-TV zone for the week. This announcement was met with groans and some unhappiness. The kids seem to be adjusting okay, but I’ve had a larger than normal amount of requests to go places or have friends over. Usually the answer to that is no. I tell the kids, “find something to do or I’ll find something for you to do.” If I find them something, it will usually be cleaning. They are avoiding that at all costs. My husband is annoyed that No TV doesn’t also mean No Screen. No screen is no computers, no mp3, no DS, no video games, no electronics, period. I didn’t go that extreme, though I did take away the Wii. We’ll see what happens this week. So far they are spending more time outside. But then today is a nice day. I’m not sure what tomorrow will look like, since I haven’t watched the news… maybe that is why I’m in a better mood.
