We've implemented a new schedule at home for Gregory and the rest of the little imps running around here. NO TV until after bubble bath at 6:30pm. Period. Also, no COMPUTER TIME until after bubble bath at 6:30pm. Then, after the glorious bubbly water cascading over their pudgy bodies, they will arrive at their promised land, of watching 1 to 2 hours of their favorite program (nowadays, "Chuggington" on the Disney channel).
The result is what I would like to believe a direct result of turning off the boob tube. A whole lot better relating goin' on.
Just now I saw Gregory go over to his 3-yr old brother with a bottle of milk and say, "Here you go, here you go", then hand him the milk... Sounds like nothing but this is extraordinary. It blew my mind! Of his own volition, he wanted to give a bottle of milk to his brother!!!
Turn off the tv and computer, and let those synapses find one another in their mysterious dance of development.
