tv is a part of our lives it influences us in all different ways. now adays the things on tv are all wrong not right for children. my young siblings watch atleast 10 hours of tv a day. it makes me mad because its not good for them to sit in front of that box doing nothing productive. i have spoken to my mother about it and she doesnt seem to care. her response is it keeps them quiet so leave them alone. i live alone now and i find myself watching tv maybe 5-10 hours a week if that. my mother she watches atleast 15 hours a day ITS CRAZY. i know i should mind my own business but it truly bothers me. go outside any play anything but the tv. anyone feel the same way or the opposite? its just getting to me about all these tv things my brother 6 years old said to me can you call me later im watching tv and i dont want to miss it. are you serious i call maybe once every two or three weeks cause im working and you still want to watch tv. i almost want things to turn into seven brides for seven brothers (great movie by the way lol) no tv always outside even in the cold. life is bigger than the television. anyways thanks for listening to me rant.
