I see so many moms on here that are so anti-TV and anti-Spanking. My kids have both and are very smart, well adjusted, and happy children. I just don't understand what makes it sooooooo bad. Abuse is one thing spanking is another. A little TV is one thing and that being the only thing they ever do is another. There is such a thing as moderation and using things when appropriate. Why not make life easier?

Well you know on this site full of b!tches you're damned if you do and damned if you don't because some moms are so damned perfect their crap doesn't even stink. That being said, my 15 yr old has a small t.v. in her room. She watches a lot of discovery health, history channel and tlc. But she also spends a lot of time with the t.v. off reading a book instead or downstairs talking with the rest of the family. My 11 yr old has a t.v. but no satellite hook up, she can watch dvd's on it. The 3 younger kids usually pop in a movie and play when they're up there, but most of the time they are downstairs with us. I share a room with my other 2 kids and have a small t.v. in there to watch the news quietly after they've gone to sleep. I watch it for only 20 min and then shut it off. On rare occasions they watch a cartoon or two in the afternoon when not in school. I've only spanked once or twice, but see nothing wrong with it.
