Oklahoma Howdy to All,

My kids are raised and gone, so my wife and I don't have the concerns of what children watch. We don't spend any money on entertainment, and neither of us drink, play golf, or do any of that other expensive stuff. We treat ourselves to satellite and watch good, clean programming whenever we want to.

We don't spend much time watching TV, but satellite gives us choices to avoid the trash.

For comedy, you watch Congress on C-Span or old Mr. Ed and Andy Griffith episodes on TV Land.

For education, you watch the Crocodile Hunter on Discovery Animal Planet or one of the 6 or more Discovery Channels.

The choices on news and sports is vast.

They still have most of the old shows on various channels that don't have a hint of anything dirty. Several channels have the super old movies that are fun and clean.

For music, we have a ton of channels with no commercials and nothing dirty. I'm certainly not talking about MTV.

Just two cents worth.

In Christ,
Tom

I would love to get rid of our tv - I hardly ever watch stuff on it anyway but my husband is the one who likes it.
I know as a parent I have to be really picky about what my children watch as there is so much rubbish on.  I mean, on most programs there is so much subtlety with little bits of new age etc coming in which influences the kids.  I won't go into details about which tv programs but I would rather my kids go outside and play.

Thanks for all the great responses and advice!  We decided to just get the local channels for the news/weather and PBS.
It seems to be working out.  The first two weeks....you could tell we had missed it and we did watch quite a bit (my husband and I that is).  
Now that we've settled into a routine....I put it on for about an hour for my son in the am to get laundry and the breakfast dishes washed.  After that its off til I take a break at two and I watch a half hour makeover show that I enjoy.
My two older children never seem to want to watch it (they're 9 and 6)....they have so many friends in the neighborhood we're outside as soon as homework is done.
It can suck away your time if your not careful and "aware" of it's influence.  
I have to say it does bring images into your home and mind even if your just turning the channel.  My kids are pretty much limited to what stations they can turn to.....
God Bless,
LMarsh

I have heard of people subscribing to "Sky Angel" I have never seen it, but it is worth looking into. I believe it has quality christian/family programing. It is worth an internet search.

We have a tv also, but just have an antenna and that gets 2 local stations..also a portable black and white that my husband watches for sports sometimes. We do watch videos of our choosing.. No kids, empty nesters..but you figure if kids can't watch it. why should you?
We've regressed back to the "old days" [I'm talking Andy Griffith here!] to the radio..Christian programming..Tv for news, when necessary, or on the computer. [kinda like to know if the  terriorists invade our soil again, we didn't have tv during the 911 & for weather updates]  Smiley

We cancelled our Cable TV. I just received a tape from sky angel, we are considering that.  We are planning a family with God's grace of course.
 Here is an eye opening article concerning children and TV
