My family has been TV free for a couple of months now. I'm curious as to what your personal reasons for being TV free are. Do you still watch movies?

We are tv free because I believe that children are like sponges and take in everything they see. They don't simply watch tv, I feel, they become it, learn from it, look up to it. I don't want my child imitating anything they see on tv. It is very important to me that DD is her own original person as much as possible not just repeating things she has seen on tv.
for me personally, I don't watch tv because I feel like it is an unrealistic view of life that i don't want to let in to my way of thinking. also, I would rather be out living life then watching it on tv. I hope that makes sense.
edited to add: and the commercials that makes us believe we need all that stuff.
