How many hours of tv does your three year old watch everyday?

My three year old watches about 3.5 hours-2 hours in the morning, 1 hour in the afternoon, and 30 minutes before her bath. I'm trying to limit the morning tv viewing to 1 hour.

How about your toddler?

  • We live in NY, so now that the weather is nicer, I'm going to take her to the park or on other outings in the mornings, which should reduce her tv viewing time. She watches too much tv.

  • Well, it's on a lot but she only sits and watches it for maybe 1 hour total all day long. She is a busy body and not much for sitting still and watching T.v. When it is on but she isn't really watching it is something educational like one of the Leap Frog shows or a animal documentary. She will sit an actually watch Phineas and Ferb and Rug Rats when her Brother gets home and turns them on.

  • I have 3 kids. 8,5, & 2. They watch maybe 30min to an hour a day and many days they don't watch any TV. And we stick to educational shows.

  • She watches Disney Junior- Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Special Agent Oso (an interestingly educational show), and Handy Manny.

  • None. None of our children watch any TV at all. They only watch movies on Friday nights.
