Who do you keep having to discuss this with? Are there really pro-tv parents out there? LOL!

Oh yes, there are. There are a LOT of people out there who are pro-TV and can't understand why you wouldn't watch it.

I give this stuff out on the yahoo waldorf groups...people keep needing ammo for telling their spouses/ex-spouses/relatives/in-laws why they don't have a TV and why to not show TV to their kids.

I see. See, I'm not pro-TV. I KNOW TV is bad. But, yeah, like Micky D's, it's not going anywhere anytime soon. I could see if you were trying to convince someone you lived with to get rid of it, though. That'd be a fight.

Oh! I read this article I want you to read! (I was reading article #1 and it was talking about the importance of nature.) It was in "Working Mother" and this chick writes an article about how kids really DON'T need nature and we're all being guilted into camping by backwards nut-jobs. It's hilarious! I'm like, you're really ANTI-nature??? LOL!!
