No TV: Day 3

My daughter is singing to herself, and dropping pebbles through the holes in the patio table. I'm not sure why she's doing this, but I'm happy she is.

We're on Day 3 of no TV, and so far, it has dramatically improved her behavior. I think she understands that Dad and Mom are not backing down on this one, or on anything. There's no negotiating. We're in charge.

Today was home(pre)school co-op, ballet, and grocery shopping. After dinner, she and I played soccer and catch on the patio. We finished sewing her hootiful owl. She did a page of Spanish (clothing, translating sentences like El vestido es rojo, and Los calcetines son amarillos). She "played" piano, did a puzzle, and read a Leap Frog book with her Tag reader.

Day Four, here we come...

  1. Keep it up. Eliminating TV greatly reduces negativity and increases creativity. It won't take very long until the tv is totally forgotten.
