TURN TV off week

Email this Post
As if they just read my excited post about the new shows this week, I got info about the Center for Screen-Time Awareness hosts a Turnoff Week to encourage people everywhere to turn off the screens for a week. The second Turnoff Week for 2009 launched yesterday, September 20th and will continue through Saturday, September 26th.
AHHHH – unfortunately at least part of my family WILL NOT be participating in this one. We did participate in April. This is so last minute – oh the guilt!! I will try to reduce, I promise.
If you are a good doobie and want to participate, simplekids (which is a fantastic site linked to simplemom) gives us these resources to help entertain when you eliminate (or reduce – i can do that) TV time:

At least this one is not during April vacation like the other week. Have you ever participated? What do you think?
