I would like to recommend you to turn your television off for one day in every week.
I think having one TV-free day each week is a good idea. Students nowadays usually spend much time on TV every day. So, on TV-free day they can enjoy their time freely, without any digital destruction, especially the TV's programs. One TV-free day each week can improve students hard motoric, because it gives them time to spend, so they can share with family, socialize and interact with people, play outside, educate themselves, try new experiences, build their mental maturity, as well as improve their abilities and talents.
Don't you think that you, as a parent, need to spend time together with your kids? Time is needed to build your family's warmth. Children and teenager spend too much time on TV's program, so why don't you try to reduce it and take that time as the quality time for your family. By turning off televisions one day every week, every family can get many advantages, such as each of family member is able to know more about the other, so you can get a better family support in your daily life, it makes life easier and happier.
Here are some ideas to spend time without TV, maybe it will work for your family. First, you can make a small garden party. You can take your family to your backyard and grill beefs, then you play your guitar or just play a relaxing music, drink your juices, and read the story books for your kids, it seems simple but your kids will love it. Second, you can play games with your kids. The best games to substitute TV-free day of course are not digital games, you can play board games, like puzzle, sudoku, chess, or you can play active games, such as hide and seek, the cat and the mouse, and eagle vs the chicken mama. Third, you can also invite your kids friends to come to your home. Don't worry about the activities that you have to do, you can be as a teacher for them and start to teach them knowledge in light way, maybe by games, you can make your home as a small kindergarten and it will improve your kids study needs at home. Fourth, you can take your kids to your library's at home or maybe book store. You have a responsibility to teach your kids to love reading books, you can start it by buying them the books which they want or read it for them, you can also re-read your old books and tell them about the contain of the books then you quiz them about the end of the book, so they will curious and read it by themselves. Fifth, you can share your skill to your kids. Maybe you can sew, cook, shape small trees, paint walls, or just washing car. You can teach your kids to do it, it's not matter about the result, maybe they can find their hobbies, at least they will get new experience, better if later it will be their skill, who knows. Sixth, you can take a class together with your kids that you both want to learn. Maybe both of you want to learn photography, swimming, cooking, ice-skating, archery, or horsing. You can spend time together and both of you learn new things. Seventh, you can make handcrafting with your kids that you or your kids can use. Teach your kids to make their small needs by themselves, not all things have to be bought, some things are able to make it by ourselves, like key chains, pin, necklace, bracelet, head accessories, mini bag, pencil ornaments, and many more. Eighth, you can fix broken things together. Maybe you have a watch which doesn't work, a broken bicycle, or a broken cupboard. You can do something with it and teach your kids how to fix something, solve problems, although it takes more time to have it done or in the end you still can't fix it, at least you have taught them how to work hard to do something and whatever the result, you have done your best and it's still okay. Ninth, you can take an evening walk together. In the day, maybe you are busy with your own activities, so why don't you spend time to walk together in evening around your community and see some stars, how beautiful, isn't it? Tenth, you can do something for someone else. You can take your kids to orphanage and share with them, or take your kids to villages and teach them to give their foods, old clothes and toys for other. It will grow their caring sense and watering their heart.
Whatever you do, I can make sure that you will be more creative and productive if you can take your TV-free time optimally and wisely. Let's start to do it now, then look what will come to your life.
