A repost of a beautifully written post about growing up without TV from the blog We Canoe.
I’ve just updated www.tvSmarter.com with a lot of new links.
Note: I also took down the “Screen-Free Week” banner (until next year), so if it still shows up on tvSmarter, just click on refresh and any new links will then show up.
Here is a small sampling:
