are you for or against?
personally I think it's SUPER detrimental. You aren't going to see your kid for many hours. If you've got extra time, why not talk? Snuggle? Go over spelling words or re-read their library book?
My son claims he's the "only one" who doesn't watch tv before school and sometimes I think he might actually be right. Our mornings are jam packed tight and any extra precious minutes we have are best spent on other things, IMO

Depends on if I remember to turn it on or not. She only has about 30 minutes to eat, get ready and get out the door in the mornings. I think what works for each family is fine. I don't see either choice as detrimental to the child.

I watch the news from 5:00am - 6:00am, then the TV is off by the time I wake up the kids. We are to busy getting ready anyway, we eat breakfast, talk about how we want our day to go, review any information needed for the day like spelling words, math strategies, or quiz information. I also don't allow them to watch any TV a an hour before bed, they read books, get everything ready for the next morning and write in their journals.
