watch tv? if so for how long? ds just turned three and I'm pregnant due august 2 so lately I've been letting him watch one or two movies through out the day so when dd is born he will be used to it if I need it... I just feel bad because I always told myself that my kids wouldn't watch tv until they were older. my brother and I were raised on tv and I got to the point it ran my life. eventually I got rid of it until I met my fiance. but anyways how much tv (if any) do your preschoolers watch?Answer Question

oh yeah....I used to be the Mom that said my kids would never watch TV too... but they do! I would guess that my kids (10yo, 6yo, and 4yo) get about an hour on a nice day and 4 hours or more on a stormy day.
