It was never my intention to raise the kid who didn’t watch TV. As a child who was raised on 70’s and 80’s television, it seemed as though the programming today was fraught with fast paced – in your face, sometimes violent animation or defiant children and bumbling parents.

ABOUT JEN: Jen Kehl is a writer, who homeschools her 8-year-old son. She has become an expert on Sensory Processing Disorder, Tic Disorders and Severe Allergies and often writes about advocating for your children instead of passively listening to the establishment.

She blogs at My Skewed View and is a contributor to the anthology The Mother of All Meltdowns available on Amazon.
