TV Off Life On



Importance of switching off TV

T.V. occupies an important spot in the household, which when turned ‘On’ switches you ‘Off’ from the family. The time spent watching T.V. can be better utilized & spent with the family or outdoors in the lap of nature.

Think about it:

  • When was the last time you took your child to the garden and played cricket?
  • When was it you spent a weekend out of town in the lap of nature?
  • Did you ever make sand castles at the beach with your kids?
  • Have you ever spent a Sunday afternoon cooking & baking with your kid?

The time you spend sitting in front of the TV screens can be used to do all the activities that you’ve only been planning to do but never actually got time for.

Most kids plug into the world of television long before they enter school. As kids grow older, too much screen time can interfere with activities such as:

  • Reading
  • Doing homework
  • Playing with friends
  • Spending time with family
It is important to understand that half the battle of winning our kids over and helping them progress through life is just being there for them. They need to see our strengths, see our weaknesses and how we handle different situations. Our kids’ eyes are always on us, and it is up to us as parents, to lead them until they are able to do so themselves.

Our campaign ‘TV Off – Life On’ aims to increase the awareness about the ill effects of watching TV and urge them to spend time with their kids, thus enriching the bond between Parents and Children. We enlighten parents on what they have been missing out on and encourage users to get out of the house and experience the great outdoors. Because children love to explore… they love to see different things… they love to create and visualize things!

The initiative aims to show that children’s interaction with nature should be preserved to enrich their own development, as well as to educate and empower their parents.  The TV OFF – LIFE ON engagement activation also allows parents to examine the limited involvement children have with nature today, as well as the limited quality time spent with parents, barriers to this engagement and the negative outcomes of this practice on their personal development.

You too can show your support for the cause!

Kids are glued to TV and are not clued about surroundings. there should be a day in which Tv should be switched off so that they can realize the value of life and ponder about what to do.

When we were small, we hardly used to watch TV. Our time was spent outdoors playing games and enjoying the nature which sadly is lacking in children of today.

very true. Only if we switch off the TV, then only we can see around us and enjoy nature.
