Roald Dahl in his poem ‘Television’ advises the parents to throw the TV set away and in its place install a lovely bookshelf on the wall and fill that with a lot of books. The poet says that the children initially do a number of things in disappointment and anger, but they will finally adapt to it and find more joy in books than in television.
 
The initial reactions of the children if a parent acts according to the poet might be like the following, as the poet mentions —

  1. staring with dirty looks
  2. screaming and yelling
  3. bites and kicks
  4. hitting others with sticks
