Blast from the Past – 1972 – the 13-Inch Black-and-White TV
A Kat Production

Your sons, 14-year-old Lorne and 12-year-old Michael, share a bedroom.


Lorne - 14 & Michael - 12

After much pleading from them, last Christmas you purchased a TV for them to share in their room. Lately, however, they’ve been arguing about what to watch. Even though you worked out (or attempted to work out) a schedule, neither boy is really happy. This evening you hear the sounds of fighting coming from their room. The fight isn’t serious – just a lot of shoving and some trash talk – and you don’t have much trouble breaking it up. When asked for an explanation, Lorne says that Michael started things by getting physical. Michael complains that Lorne came in and rudely changed the channel when it wasn’t his night to pick the programming.

You put on your referee's hat and you . . .

"Pants off, get the brush...."

Wait until zippers start coming down.

""Or would you rather talk reasonably?"

I think the first thing to do is get a TV guide and decide which shows both boys want to watch, then which shows each boy wants to watch that his brother doesn't. If I'm just alternating days, then both boys are having to miss their favorite show about every other week, so it's no wonder they're both getting upset.

What we'll do is prioritize so each boy gets to watch most of his favorite shows, and if I have to let one of the boys watch in the living room... well, I always have my books.

I like Jack's solution. However, when something like this actually did happen to me (TV in car, not kid's room, and 7 years apart, not 2), my response was to unplug the TV--"if you can't behave reasonably, NO ONE will get to watch". It worked.

If you want to watch TV again before you're 21, boys...

Here's the schematic so you can build one for yourselves and all...

PS - be careful... there is 60,000 volts present on the plate of the 3A3 tube and all...

Dittoing Katz and all..... Very Happy

I'm letting the boys keep the tv but I like jacks looking at the guide then they can each pic one hour of a show (or two half that equals the hour) then if they like the others show they can watch if not to bad then tv goes off for the night...

Can I convince the boys that the answer to problems isn't always black and white? Smile

I'd certainly follow the excellent suggestions in this thread about how to help the boys share the TV in a constructive manner. But before that we need to talk about fighting among themselves, let's assume for the sake of fun that they have had fights like this before and I have already warned them... after a short lecture, it's time for those pants to come down. As the youngest, Michael will go first.
