Mary Beth and I have always tried to carefully limit the amount of TV that Caleb watches, but still too often find ourselves using the TV to give us a break from parenting. I recently read a blog post about some parents who found themselves too far down that road and how they struggled to change their family habits.
She made an interesting point about how TV can rob us from doing the things that God wants us to do with our time. We want our family to try and have a very balanced approach to our entertainment habits because we think God wants us to enjoy some time off every now and then, but He doesn’t want it to consume all of our time. What do you think?
