Tune in to Each Other
Fall "sweeps" month begins tomorrow, and that means TV shows will resort to more sensational programming to boost their ratings and advertising dollars. So be prepared for even more sex, violence and vulgar language than usual for the next 30 days. While there isn't much you can do about what's on TV, there's a lot you can do about how much you'll allow into your home. Why not consider creating a family TV pledge, and use that time for other family pursuits…like reading, taking up a new hobby, playing board games, working jigsaw puzzles, or just talking together? Turn off the TV. Tune in to each other.
