Questions about the term "tv-free"? - Page 2

post #21 of 24
I also agree with the self-defining statements.

I tend to say that we don't have "television". We do have a TV though and watch movies or some TV series on it occasionally. Otherwise nothing but static or a blue screen. We listen to music, or our house is quiet. Until another child or two come along. LOL

we only watch dvds. we could pick up PBS, because I used to watch the news hour from time to time, but it's not been on in over a year. maybe once every two or three months I'll watch a movie.

We do watch dvd's or watch stuff on the internet on occasion.

A screen is a screen is a screen since laptops have access to video and dvd capability. As a pp says, WE control what we view, not the other way around. With carefully chosen dvds one can almost eliminate most of the invasive direct marketing to children.
I say we are tv-free because we are not influenced by the "tv culture". Of course, I miss most pop culture references in conversation with others, but so be it. And ds has no idea who Thomas the Train is, but that will all come soon enough.

For us right now it is no cable or converter box so if we turn on our tv it is just snow. We do use the dvd player, and DH and I watch certain shows on the computer sometimes.
