  • The tv and the computer are located in the family room, where activities can be monitored. I don't think children need electronics in their bedrooms.

  • Not now, and not later. No TV's or computers in their bedrooms.

  • why do you even ask an opinion if you're just going to vote down? An opinion is valid whether you agree with it or not. I'll remember not to answer one of your posts again Gumbo.

  • How absurd that all of the NO answers (and a couple of the yes answers too) were voted down. No one said that the others were wrong, they simply stated their choice and why, as the question asked.
    I tend to agree with Anon. (and samurai chica) regarding the downvoting. Why should I be downvoted because I don't have a tv in a child's room? I don't think it's "mean" but I do think it's stupid and immature to vote down opinions because they are not your own. And yes, I too will be avoiding Gumbo's posts from now on.

  • No. Bedrooms are for sleeping. My now-teens have never had a tv in their bedrooms.

  • No, not here. I find it entirely unnecessary, among other reasons.

  • Absolutely not. Our TV is kept in the family room and watching is limited.

  • No, I do not allow televisions or computers in my daughter's bedrooms. Interesting how some people in this country find that necessary.
