Television has destroyed communication among families. Before TV, meals were a time for families to reflect upon the day and linger in peace or lively discussion over home-cooked meals. Today, most families regularly watch television during dinner. When the television is on for hours each day, it’s much more difficult to have real conversations with the people in your life. Over time, less communication means weaker relationships with the people you love. It makes me sad to see how people allow the smaller moments we spend together intruded upon by this force. They need to understand that real people need more attention than these TV shows.
