I was thinking of upgrading the speakers for the TV in living room and one for the PC, but the children keep saying wireless earphones this or Bluetooth earbuds that. Those feel a little too individual. Maybe I'm worrying about not having enough time spent together.
Do you think there's a way to tempt the children to look my way?
I personally hate earbuds. My kids like 'em but I think that's largely so they can listen to their devices instead of what's being played in the car, or to be able to listen to music while in class or at work. So I kind of get that.
People have different tastes in music; that's okay. It's not good for their ears to wear those earbuds for so long on top of not interacting with the rest of the family. Even if they want to hear their own music, speakers will get them much better sound quality than earbuds can provide anyway. I get that it's convenient, though.
