Alternatives to TV

Let's face it, the TV is a convenient babysitter. You just plop your children down in front of it and turn on a program or a movie; presto, golden silence reigns! However, the easy road is not always the best road. Short of installing the Time's Up! device, a parent simply must exercise self-discipline in this area.

  • Play a game
  • Take a walk
