Suggestions > Turn Off Your TV

TV is really not that interesting. Yes, some channels are informative and really entertaining, but most of it is just trash.

Think of all of the things you could be doing instead of TV! Here's just a small list:

  • Talking
  • Going for a walk
  • Biking
  • Rollerskating
  • Running
  • Swimming
  • Other sports
  • Playing an athletic game outside
  • Playing a board or card game
  • Playing music and singing
  • Writing a story
  • Writing a poem
  • Pondering deep thoughts
...and on and on it goes. There are so many things one can do instead of watching TV, and most of the time they are all more fun anyway.

Now, why not to watch TV:
  • Studies have shown that kids who watch too much TV are more likely to have ADD
  • It's bad for the eyes
  • It discourages imagination
  • Commercials on TV manipulate viewers
  • The content on TV is not worth watching
  • Kids who watch violence on TV are more likely to be violent when they are adults

So, instead of sitting down for a four-hour TV viewing, turn it off and have some real fun! I barely ever watch TV nowadays, and you can too!
