Reading Surpasses The DVD For The Kids July 31, 2012

Posted by Tom Wells in Tom's Posts.

I was putting away some of the gadgets we took with us on our big family road trip when I came upon the portable DVD player that I had packed with us.  I have used the player to entertain the kids with on long road trips in the past.  This time around, I didn’t have time to set it up ahead of the trip and there always seemed to be one reason or another to not set it up on the road.  While my 9-year-old son did ask for it a couple of times, he didn’t really miss it.  I downloaded books for him to my Kindle and his sister had her own books to read.  So when the monotony of the midwest prairie land got to them, my kids turned to their reading.  Aside from one morning of TV time while visiting family in Montana, our kids went without TV for nearly two weeks, and they survived.

Not only that, they thrived.
