What The? Wednesday
I’m going to give this vintage ad the benefit of the doubt. I doubt they had ANY idea how television would impact our lives in the ‘future’. We’ve come a long way from one station in black and white that only airs for an hour a day.
There is no doubt however that TV has its benefits. The problem is not TV in itself but how TV has taken over our lives. 24 hr kids channels, copious amounts of advertising, sponsored programs, trashy and inappropriate shows, sexualised ads..the list goes on.
As with any media TV is addictive – just try giving it up! This is why we need to be mindful as to how much TV is appropriate (or good for us) as a family. I know we are always trying to adjust the amount in our family and I admit, we don’t always do this brilliantly.
Do you have a TV free household?
Do you think you (or you kids!) could survive without TV?
