The Role of Television

Our hand-me down television that was over 10 years old finally broke down on us – the screen just went blank. It has been about a week now without a television. The more I think about it, the more I realize how television plays a significant role in a family’s life. The kids could not watch DVDs, play their PS2 or even watch some of their favorite television shows – Josiah was particularly in anguish because he could not watch ESPN. The kids were miserable.

But in every bleak situation there is always a glimmer of hope. It was nice to see the kids playing with each other more – board games and puzzles. It was good to see the kids practice their piano more frequently (willingly). I felt like our communication with one another improved throughout this week.

I think taking a break from the television once in awhile is refreshing. Now, we have to figure out what we need to do for a television. It is always good to have a younger brother that works for Samsung who can get some major employee discounts on their televisions. Time to do some research.
