This was a great read and I would recommend it to all parents, whether they are with a baby or have older kids. It is a fascinating, funny and very personally honest account of one mother's attempt to raise her child without TV. The author is brutally honest about everything , so much so that I thought âI can't believe she shared that!â But that simply adds to the interest of the story. As a child who was raised without a TV for most of my childhood, I thought some of the stuff to be farfetched. But the more I meet other parents, the more I see how pervasive TV is in so many children's lives. Some of my son's playmates (age 3) have almost the entire Noggin line-up memorized for the whole day. I am trying to raise my own son with very little TV and it certainly is a bit harder not to just plop him in the front of the TV when I need a break.
