My son, Bobby, has wanted nothing more than a TV for his room ever since he could start talking. My husband and I don’t think it’s a good idea for kids to have TV’s in their rooms because then we can’t monitor what they are watching. We also don’t allow him to have a computer in his room for the same reason. This has made us the “uncool” parents for many years, but we have stuck firm with our decision. We have been so pleased with our son. He is now on the varsity football and basketball teams, and he makes straight A’s, so we decided to go ahead and let him get a TV for his room. Not only that, but we got it for him for Christmas, complete with a satellite subscription fromDirect TV Mobile. He’s so excited, and it was fun to watch his face when he got this gift he has literally wanted forever! Whoever said it was more joyous to give than to receive must have had a child with the look on their face that my son said when he opened that box!
