My DS didn't watch TV at all until he was 3 (and I went back to work).
Now he's 5, and he's addicted, and I'm addicted to the Food Network!
I am thinking I will cancel our cable (costs $60 a month!) but I'm not sure how to explain it to him.
I think I need to explain it a few days ahead of time, so it's not a surprise (that would be bad).
Any suggestions on ways to explain it to a 5yo in a way that will help it not be a horrible thing?
I think we will both benefit greatly from it and it will be very worthwhile... my only hesitation is that it's a big change for a TV addict like my 5yo. I don't want to be left with a screaming, fit-throwing, horrible child during the transition, if it's avoidable, kwim?
Any suggestions on how t obreak the news would be greatly appreciated. I think this is the right season, since it's spring.
