Sundays can be such a wonderful day to spend with my family. I love Sunday’s just for this. No obligations, no work, just a day at home enjoying the ones I love. So, how do you do this peacefully? When one kid wants to run off with their friends, one kid wants to just watch television; one kid is steering clear of everyone and hiding in their room. Not to mention that Dad just wants to hang out in his garage or watch some sports.
One of the most unfortunate truths of reality these days is that the cost of living is significantly higher than previous generations. It does not matter where you live; it simply costs more to buy property. Of course, the fact that salaries have not shifted nearly as much means that there is a great imbalance in the income-to-debt ratio and many young people are choosing to delay many of the larger life decisions that were much easier for their parents.
You will probably agree with me that cutting down on TV time is one of the hardest habits to eliminate. In fact, even your kids will protest if you try to impose a strict rule and schedule in watching television. Some parents do not bother about this issue but I personally believe that watching television can do more harm than good to our kids.
I would like to reiterate some of the pros and cons of too much TV watching based on my personal views.
