    I agree, Emily. I struggled with guilt for several months. We were getting ready to move and I was trying to work extra hours (from home) and so I told myself it was only temporary, but I felt awful about it. Looking back, now that it’s a routine that has stuck around and I feel I’ve successfully got a handle on setting limits with it (I was afraid I’d slip down the slope!) I realize that the error is when it is used in excess or *shudder* in kids rooms, or when parents use it to “put the child to sleep.”

      @ Kendra — I work from home too, and I’ve fallen into just what you describe; I’ve been using TV as a stop-gap when my workload has gotten particularly heavy. I’m hoping to correct that this summer; it’s high time my younger two kids spent less time in front of the TV and more time outside! 🙂
