Of course, some people say that too much TV is a bad thing, and you really should limit the amount of time your little devils spend glued to the set. But how to do it without actually having to give up your glass or chardy and your book?
With BOB, of course! A device that plugs into any monitor, and switches the screen off after a period of time determined by you. You can set it up for up to six kids, so once your kids have reached their hourly, daily, or weekly quota, the screen snaps off, leaving the kid to occupy themselves otherwise.
Which will probably involve going to a friend's place whose parents aren't jerks, joining a gang, or cutting on BOB with a pair of scissors. Whichever way, your kid isn't going to be happy with you.
