Lights Off? - Aloha Friday

1. Do you turn off the lights when you leave a room?
2. Does your child use a night light?


Explain to children that lights, televisions and computers use energy, which is in short supply. This is a simple way to reduce wasted energy and carbon. If you turn off just one appliance, you could save 99 pounds (or 45 kgs) of greenhouse gas!

  2. I always turn off the lights when I leave a room, but truthfully, I move around a lot in the dark so I don't turn them on if I don't have to.

  3. My dad had a saying, "WHEN NOT IN USE TURN OFF MY USE"! He would get so mad at us when we were kids. I passed that same quote down to my kids as they have passed it on to theirs. Now if I can only get my husband to abide by that quote! LOL

    My kids never needed a night light that I can remember. They knew they were loved and I always killed all boogie men so they knew mama was a bad ass not to mess with me! Hugs and smooches at bedtime that's all!
    Have a great day!

  5. I turn of the lights if I'm not going back into the room for a while. But I only use one light in the living room, and I keep it on dim. When we moved into this house, we spent almost $300 on energy efficient bulbs, and use them only when absolutely needed.

  6. mostly, i turn the lights off when i am about to retire in the night, or leave the house for long.

    it makes me feel lonely or sleepy when it is dark. :D

  8. I'm always fussing if someone leaves a light on and use them as little as possible. My family teases me that I must be a vampire because I always like to keep it dark in the house.

  9. I definitely turn lights off when I leave the room - I've taught the kids to do the same. The hubby needs better training. ;) Neither kid sleeps with a nightlight. :)

  10. I actually have those night lights all over the house because it drives me crazy when people turn on every light in their path....an leave them on. Have a great weekend!

  11. I always have the light off...when there is enough daylight. We don't use night lights, never really had the need with our kids. If I use it, it is because I can't get around at night without it, but now with a phone, there is always flashlight. smiles.

  12. I try to turn off lights...it's a pet peeve of mine. My sister is the opposite and it drives me bonkers!

  13. Most of the time I'm good at remembering to turn off lights, but I will admit sometimes I forget >.<

    But yes, I try to be energy conscious. I could be better though!

    Happy Friday sis :)

  14. my whole life I have been told to turn off the lights and yet it is still a habit I have trouble developing while we do keep lights off most the time it is often hard for me to remember to shut off the lights as I go out of the room. Yes my child does have a night light

  15. I turn the lights off too as I really feel is a waste of electricity to leave them on. It's really frustrating when the kids keep on forgetting to do so. They don't have a night light.

  16. I turn the lights off when I leave any room. Even exam rooms at the doctor and public bathrooms. LOL
    My children never used a night light but our youngest grands like to fall asleep at our house with a light up turtle that projects stars on the ceiling.

  17. Yes, I do turn the lights out. It is important. I don't even turn it on if I don't have to.
    I don't use the night lights. I am just too lazy. :-)
