  • There's a TV in my 8 year old's room, but it's not plugged in to cable. It's only for watching DVDs or playing video games, and only if they ask.

  • Not in this house. What better way to know exactly what my kids are watching on the TV than when it's playing in our living room? But that's our home.

  • No, he doesn't and he's 15. Bedrooms are for sleeping, so why would he need a tv in there?
