Should a Family Turn Off the TV for a Week?
Yes, I think it is a good idea to take away television for a plethora or reasons. The reasons are, maybe it is making us get less smart. Also it may be keeping us off task. When it is time for you to do your homework, it is keeping you awake every night so you do not get the rest you need to go to school in the morning. Maybe on Friday or Saturday you can watch TV and on Sunday you could watch it until 5 pm and study from 5:00 to 6:30.
No, I don’t think it is a good idea to take away television privileges from us kids. You can learn a lot of things from it like on Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, and the History Channel. People say watching TV makes your brain healthier. If your kids are not doing their homework, check their planners everyday and make them do their home work and then let them watch television.
