Today kicks off the week of screen-free time, hosted by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood. What would you and your family do with an extra 20, 30, or even 50 hours a week, the site for the campaign asks.
Maybe you could use all of that extra time turning off the televisions of people not so into getting back to their non-television roots. The Screen-Free Week’s website lists the TV-B-Gone device on their resources page for the event.
Under the listing for the device, which can be used to turn off virtually any remote-controlled television, the site says the gadget is a “great tool for zapping off some of those pesky screens during Screen-Free Week!” The site also gives you a 10 per cent discount if you buy one.
Forced or by choice, do you think you could give up spare-time screen-time for a week? No TV, no video games, no casual net surfing.
