  • Children would develop more mentally in that they would be getting out and using their imaginations and playing pretend . . . not parked in front of a computer or television all day long.

  • We ration the TV time.. So I have found that my kids are much more active, they play outside until dark, play more together in their rooms, draw/color create more art projects. Learn from their Dad out in the garage instead of being seduced in front of the TV... These are just things I've noticed compared to a lot of families with kids that we know...

  • People would be more productive. Children and adults, for that matter, would have to use their imagination. Maybe you could find some statistics on obesity-Are there a significant number of obese/overweight people who are chronic t.v. watchers?

  • I never thought about it - we rarely watch tv at all.
    Computers, on the other hand, are beginning to take up a lot of mine and my family's time. :)

  • Would probably be less violence, and people would probably be a little less anxious without all the scares that the media loves to portray.

  • We don't have a TV in our home. My son at 6 has only seen a couple of shows at grandmas or his friends homes. We are a much closer family than most I know. We are more physically fit since we go out for a walk after dinner during the week. On the weekends we are out doing something together as a family. My son is not exposed to so many negative things. There is enough of that in the world he does not need TV to reinforce it. My son is not exposed to commercials so he does not think he needs so many things.

    Life without a TV is great.
