1) Replace the TV with good books – Neh 8:8, I Tim 4:13.
Christianity is based on a book, and reading comprehension is one of the most important skills that a child can develop. To encourage a greater love for reading, TV viewing should be strictly limited with very few exceptions - even to the point of the parents not watching anything until after the children are in bed. The TV provides instant gratification and teaches kids to be impatient. Books are more work, and they teach the value of diligence. Reading develops attentiveness, but TV and video games decrease the child’s attention span.
