    My 3 year old son loves Dinosaur Train! My older kids love watching Nova and Nature and other quality shows on PBS. And I agree- kids need to be outside much more than they are, and hard work never hurt anyone!

    "Creating interesting content for children is not rocket science"

    It is to people who've grown up dependent on T.V. Don't get me wrong, I was raised on it, and I'm all for it. But my grandpa wasn't raised with a television, not even with plastic toys, but WOODEN toys. He was also raised on a farm, doing hard work.

    He grew up with more common sense than I see in people today.

    Perhaps what they need isn't 'interesting T.V. content' but 'interest content' in general. How interesting can it be when it's from the same source all day long?

    Before T.V. kids had to find ways to entertain themselves. Talk about creativity! Today, we would destroy creativity and give them math instead. Don't get me wrong, math is great, science is great, but today's children are growing up with less sense of honor, virtue, moral conduct, and integrity shoved in their face. It's important to find wholesome media, and wholesome non-media activity all the same. Perhaps the more children find real life more interesting than T.V., they'll find real life more enjoyable anyway.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I believe history agrees with me.
