I know I have gone over to visit with my mother many times and I could not talk to her because her shows were on. I have asked to turn the tv down, turned it off at a commercial(ok, rude, I k now, but still!) and on, but she won't let go.

Some people want TV. In my home we have the computer for watching DVD's and internet. It'll be hard, but it's life.

Well, if you're going to get all technical on me , yes you are right. I guess I'm just trying to highlight the positivity to the visit. Still doesn't have anywhere near the same effect as "Remember when we were sitting around the campfire..."

I just had a visit from my MIL who said she feels she is addicted to television and is going to try to cut back when she got home, she noticed a big difference when she visited and didn't watch any .
