Restricted TV Challenge – Day 1 – My Plan
Kids nowadays become too dependent on watching TV. I think equally myself as their parent I become too dependent on it providing entertainment (or just background noise) for a child’s day. I am planning to replace the TV with either music or just good old family play. Here is our restricted TV Challenge day 1 plan…
7-9 am TV was on but kids were having breakfast, getting dressed for the day also.
9-onwards. TV off and we play.
10-30/11ish Leah naps and due to a bad night we all join her (hopefully *fingers crossed*).
Lunch – TV back on for an hour or so whilst we eat and clean up.
1ish – Trip to the park, depending on the weather (looks wet!)
3ish back home to play
4-30/5 pm-ish TV on again for tea time
After tea – TV off until after changed for bed (usually about 6.15ish).
6.15 – TV back on for Leah’s bedtime bottle then bed
The TV will most likely remain on for the rest of the evening.
This may look a lot to some people but to us, this will be a miracle if Lewis can cope without TV. I also need to prevent Lewis from going to his room to watch a DVD in retaliation!
I will report back later but not a bad restricted TV Challenge day 1 plan!
