I probably had a harder time than others in the house. As a stay-at-home mom, I often flip the TV on for company while the kids nap or while I'm working around the house. There were times when I felt lonely. I tried the radio, but it wasn't quite the same. It's not to say I couldn't do it; it just required more getting used to than I expected it to.
Overall, I felt like this was a great activity. I've always tried to limit our screen time, and will continue to do so. I don't see us going completely screen free for our entertainment, but this definitely reaffirms my belief that we can always find something else to do. As spring finally gets rolling here in Michigan (I hope) we'll be spending more and more time outside, so it should get easier to limit our screen time. Then, by the time the dark months of winter roll around, we'll be used to finding other things to do as our default reaction instead of hitting the power button.
