“That is because their parents don’t love them.” -Me. *(See Below)
“That is NOT true. Caleb has a TV in his room and his mom loves him.” -Peter.
“I happen to know, because I am a parent and parents tell each other their secrets, that the only reason you put a TV in your kid’s bedroom is to get rid of your kids.” -Me again.
The Family Room is Good Enough
“Well, Mrs East must REALLY want to get rid of Caleb because they put a flatscreen on his wall and hooked up an XBOX.” -Peter
“They are also, obviously, not concerned about him developing mashed potato brains if he can play video games in his bedroom.” -Yep, me again.
When it is 95 Degrees Outside I Have No Issues WIth a Video Game That You Move To
“Mom, no one can really get mashed potato brains because there is no such thing as mashed potato brains and why don’t you ever want to get rid of me?” -Peter.
“Peter, go to you room and read a book. See, I love you AND I want to get rid of you” -Me.
Keep Digging Peter
* I threw all other parents under the bus out of frustration he wouldn’t stop asking for a television in his bedroom. Each child is different as is each circumstance. I am not one to judge, as I know I am doing the best I can, this day. So if you have put a TV in your kids bedroom, I am sure you still love them and know that our boys have a “kids living room” with a TV in it in the center of their bedrooms. I think a TV in their rooms would be redundant. 🙂
