My husband recently landed a great job in another city--five hours away. I had to stay behind with the kids to complete a lease agreement and pack/clean the house. I have FOUR boys in which I stuck in front of a T.V. in between meals and outside time so I could get all I needed done. Our school does not start until September 10th and they have not been getting the reading I do for them during all their meals because I have packed them all up. I have a 12 passenger van so going to the Library regularly now was out until we moved. I just feel sooo bad cause I've heard so many reports on the damage it does to the child when they have more than 2 hours of T.V time a day. Spongebob has become my buddy...and I'm ashamed. Anyone ever have to undo the boob tube damage they have done? Does this wear off? Can I still have a successful school year where my kids are paying attention and loving reading again?
