I’m Back


Well I’m back after a long hiatus.

Thank you to everyone who continued to visit here and support the cause of “a lot less TV” or even “no TV”!

I’ve updated the website and have added a bunch of new links, especially to the “Intelligence & TV” page and the “Playing vs TV” page, hope you’ll check them out.

The incomparable Unplug Your Kids is a blog with great ideas for fun and interesting things to do with your unplugged young ones.


Campaign for a Commercial-Fee Childhood is unfortunately not an anti-TV site, but they do have a great RSS feed. Also, I’ll never forget that they were the only organization to take on Disney for marketing their awful Baby Einstein Videos as educational.
