Guest post of the week by Nestor Nielsen
I don’t like for my kids to watch a lot of television. I’d much rather they play outside or read a book. Sometimes those aren’t the best options and then television is a necessary evil—like when it’s freezing cold or raining or the day before the library books are due and everything has been read. With our http://www.directstartv.com/ I at least have options for fun and educational programming when I need half an hour to get something done. Just the other night we discovered a show none of us had seen before—Ni Hao, Kai-Lan. The show is designed to familiarize children with Chinese American culture. We eat Chinese food at our house on a regular basis so I thought it was neat for our kids to see that there is more to the Chinese American culture than just food. Plus, with the Chinese New year, something they had talked about at school, it was interesting for them to learn more about the Chinese culture and build on what they learned at school!
