  • Good luck with that one. I had two that never would watch a whole TV show. I always heard moms say how their children would sit and watch the TV for hours. NOT MINE.

  • Is this a serious question?
    First of all, when has ANYONE gotten 7 kids to want to do the same thing at the same time, especially when it involves sitting and being quiet?? Then, why do you want them in front of the TV? Most kids can't sit still very long. Take them to the park and let them run off the energy.

  • Is this for school or for home? What works for me is I first do it after they have been active and its after lunch. I tell them instead of taking a nap they can watch a Tv show but need to lay down and relax. If they get up it means they go and lay down for a nap, since it is quite time. It works just about every time and they usually fall asleep anyway. Also with 7 kids are they about the same age? Tv show selection that is for all attention spans is important. If you have a 7 year old that wants to watch an older kids show then the toddlers may be bored and restless. Disney movies work well.

  • Multiple TVs so they can watch what they want.

  • Yeh... I don't get the question either.

    What are you doing with 7 kids? Why do you want them to just sit around watching TV? You should be encouraging them to be active. Let them play outside, then they will be more calm to relax when you want them to.

  • Because they are KIDS and don't want to sit still and watch tv. Do NOT force them to sit and watch tv. Let them be active and play outside, with YOU.

  • Because they're kids. Let them run around somewhere to expel their energy.
