Of all the things I don’t want Darrius to be is a TV addict. But how do you not let your kids watch that idiot box when that is the only fun and entertaining thing around this century? (Luckily I have not introduce any PC or Online games if not he will horde my PC too!)
Darrius will get bored with all his toys after playing with them for a while…. even new toys. It is only the TV that can keep him entertained the entire day. Sometimes out of desperation I took the trouble to bring him out shopping in the hope to shorten his TV hours.
Since we do not have Astro and our very BOLEH TV channels have nothing better to watch, I will switch on his DVD or VCD for him…. the same few. Now that he is much older, he will select what he wants to watch instead of me choosing it for him. (This morning he asked for Thomas the Tank which he watched at my friend’s place… cham mou???? )
He is so addicted that even when he wants to pee, he wants me to ‘pause’ the show which he has been watching for a million times! Other times he will just peep in his pants so that he won’t have to leave the TV!
Am I doomed or what? 😐
