  • It changes everyday. Somedays when its raining My kids will watch movies all day. When its nice out they may only watch an hour. They are 3 -5- 9 YO. (the 9 yo is not that into watching tv)

  • We play in the living room and most of the time the tv or music is on! Like now Mickey Mouse Club house is on but he is sitting in the floor reading a book! Hopefully soon he will be on a different schedule.

  • For some reason my kids don't watch tv. They are active, like to be outdoors, socializing w/ friends, doing physical activities and sports and spending time w/ family in the kitchen and relaxing in the family room. TV in this house is like prelude to bedtime something calm and quiet to help u settle down to bed.

  • Don't... we don't do cable or standard stations.... 2x's a week we have movie night.
    If we need the news we are online. Gs has his own pc as we do. Gs is limited on his pc for the exception of rain days or heavy snow days.... :) otherwise he is outside playing...

  • When my son was a baby he never watched TV. We turned it on for the first time for him when he was 3 1/2. He watches maybe 3 hours in a week. We are not big TV watchers. My husband and I have shows we DVR and watch after our son has gone to bed. I really don't want him watching much he has such a great imagination why ruin that with the idiot
