I do think that raising kids almost demands some sort of cable package. Sesame Street and other programs like it are good learning tools and as much as I hate the idea a TV is sometimes all that keeps parents sane.
It seems that we are similar in many respects. I am not trying to be critical of you or your lifestyle at all. I am only questioning the need to help fund the lives of those that live above their means.
Thanks for the internet suggestion, that does seem to be a reasonable price. However, I still will likely not pursue having the internet at my house. It seems I do not have the time to get things done the way it is WITHOUT the internet or cable to consume (more of) my time.
Also, our children watch VERY limited amounts of television. There is enough childrens programming on the public stations to provide some entertainment/education for the little ones.
I still stand by my opinion that internet service, FANCY cellphones and cable are definitely not necessities. If one can afford more than necessities, they do not really need
help buying necessities. See, it doesn't even make sense in a sentence.
