This is really sad to see, schools need to pick up and so do parents

I am home with my kids each day and we have a "no TV" rule until I workout. Do they have to play the old fashioned way all day.

We let them have TV time, but if I let them, they woudl watch TV all day and sit like lumps.

I think that is a great way to do things btb, I remember when I was younger my friends and I would play all day long. Sometimes I would leave home at 9 in the morning stop back for lunch and then stay out until dark, when I was like 10.

We burned a lot of calories on those days!! Nothing wrong with a little tv time though

Oh yes, always always out on my BMX bike or skateboard going everywhere, miles a day palling around with my neighborhood buddies. TV was never even a thought in our minds, sun up till sundown every summer was go go go!

No excuse in a state like Texas either with their warm weather.

I can see it being tougher up north. I remember it was tough to stay active year round growing up in Indiana & Ohio.

Man I used to play baseball 12 hours a day during Summer. The only time we watched TV was at night when the parents went to bed and the naughty movies came on cable.
