Television Watcher

Dear Highlights,
I’m not going outside a lot because I like TV too much. What should I do?
Esther, California

TV can be fun to watch, but it can be addicting! It’s good that you see how it can take time away from other things. The more active and creative you are, the better you’re likely to feel.

Remember that you control the TV; it doesn’t control you. Decide on a time limit, and don’t let yourself channel-surf. (Searching for something to watch is a sign that you can find more interesting things to do!) Staying away from the TV area will make you find other ways to entertain yourself.
