Joining on page 8, a bit late, but we're another tv-free family here.
I grew up with tv, but was always more interested in reading than spending lots of time watching tv. Dh was TV-free from about age 8 onwards. I watched a moderate amount as a young single adult, mostly the usual pop culture stuff. When I moved in with dh six years ago, we had a tv but never chose to watch as we spent most of our non-work hours playing volleyball (my mantra - I will not be a nursing mama forever, I *will* play volleyball again someday) and the remainder working in the garden. Then our renter quit paying for the cable we were mooching. Since we lived in a rural mountain area with no reception we no longer had the option to watch even if we wanted. We haven't had a tv in our home for the last five years, with the exception of the three months we lived with my parents while househunting.
I could go on & on why I don't think tv is good for me or my baby. Suffice it to say, I believe tv is a corporate medium for delivering advertising & blatantly & subtly promotes a consumerist mindset that makes people feel dissatisfied with aspects of their lives that would be better if only they spent money on [...].
Dh & I haven't figured out how we will handle computer screen time when ds is older (at least past 3). Dh is a serious computer geek, and I like my internet. I have been mulling the interesting comments here on "do as I say, not as I do." Thanks for the discussion!
