  • Most of the time my kids would rather be playing or coloring instead. There are some days that I let each one of them pick out one movie a piece to watch.

  • My 5 year old has a tv with cable in her room. She has it on when she's in there, but she's usually so busy playing that she doesn't pay attention to it. Sometimes, she has her favorite channels on, sometimes she has a movie in the dvd player, but most of the time, she's listening to music on the dvd player. She just likes the noise and to sing and dance to the music. As for actual watching, about two hours a day. One in the middle of the day during rest time, where she lays down and watches two shows, and again at bed time when she does the same.

  • Absolutely no TV's in bedrooms in this house ... and they watch one to two hours at a time, two or three times a week.
