Turn Off the TV For a Happier & Cleaner Home

The author of the excellent blog Becoming LDS recently wrote about how she decided their family would go without TV for one week. The results were a small miracle that occurred in her house. They put a sign on the TV saying it was “No TV Week” and she recorded all the great things that came from shutting of the TV:

Seriously, push the off button on your TV for a week and watch your house whip into shape.  It is quite amazing. My house is the cleanest it has been in a long, long while. …

My kids are friends.  They ACTUALLY like each other. Really they do.  There were still moments of an 17 month old’s squeals from a brother’s “love” but they played together way, WAY more than I have seen them play, I think EVER.  And they laughed.
