Today was day 3 of "we watch too much tv - no more!" For the past 3 days I've restricted the kids to no more than 30 minutes per morning and 30 minutes per afternoon. I remember one summer we spent at a babysitter's house who had kids about our ages. She restricted us to that limit and it worked well. So far they've been watching Wilbur on Discovery Kids in the morning, and Word World on PBS in the afternoon. They've been playing with their blocks and really getting imaginative. I think this was their attempt at creating corrals for their toy ponies and other small animals.
