I'm just curious because I know a mother that is literally addicted to the internet in which her own children hates it that they freely reply to anyone they meet that "Moms life is the internet" so with that said. We know she also allows a lot of time for the children while done with school, she gives up the internet for maybe the rest of the night for the kids to play games. Play, Play, Play computer games. However, she swears by all means that t.v. is beyond her will to let her children watch it. It is like maybe once or twice a month in a month she will allow it other than that, it's okay to over due the computer thing...oh and the games are not learning games and the age of the children are 9. Just wondering what you think. T.v. is good or bad vs. Internet gaming.
Funny though, when the kids are with other people. They know the words of all the Disney after school shows and the characters and tell you bout other shows.

I allow my 4 yo 35 minutes of computer game play a day. Her game sites are all educational, and well, she enjoys it. As for TV time, the TV is on all day here. I like the noise really. She'll mostly play, do puzzles, paint, etc. Once in a while a show will catch her interest too. We always enjoy breakfast to a morning movie. With winter near, the outdoor bike rides and park visits will soon be coming to an end, which is a BUMMER.
