5 Benefits of Going TV Free
1 As I’ve been striving to live more simply and reduce my ties to our consumer culture, I’ve realized that television is just another form of consumption.
2 Turning off the TV can help us get back in touch with reality.
Being fed a constant diet of the monoculture portrayed on TV leaves us desensitized to real relationships. Are all husbands dopey and unhelpful? Are all wives nagging and overly sensitive? Are all kids shuffled off screen as an inconvenience? I don’t know about you but that’s not the reality I know.
Turning off the TV has allowed me to refocus on the real values of our family. Watching TV can easily allow things inconsistent with those values to slip into your home.
