For better or worse, most evenings, my family spends a chunk of time between dinner and sleep in the family room with a video on the big screen and each of us with a laptop on their lap.
Sometimes, perhaps often, maybe even nearly always, the video is not worth watching, and afterward, everyone says so.
We don’t leave early.
We don’t walk out of the theater.
We’ve decided to start a new family tradition where anyone can ask, “I’m not enjoying this video; is anyone else?” If no one says they are, we are going to skip the rest of it.
I think it will work wonders.
