A Brave New World: Too Much (Online) TV
"When the TV is on All day without rest, Mama knows it's too much ~ And Mama knows best." -- The Berenstain Bears and Too Much TV, by Stan and Jan Berenstain One of my favorite books growing up, and one I like to read regularly to my children, is Stan and Jan Berenstain's "The Berenstain Bears and Too Much TV". The book starts out with Mama Bear preparing a snack for the Cubs, Brother and Sister Bear rushing in from school, grabbing the snack, and immediately sitting in front of the TV without hesitation. It continues when Papa Bear comes home from work and does the same. "There's no question about it, those cubs are watching too much TV!" she says in the book repeatedly as she observes their condition.
