I have a 5 year old and almost 8 year old stepchildren - when they were younger, they were allowed to watch TV all the time, and always went to bed and watched TV until they fell asleep. I've lived with them for more than 2 years now, and we have a great relationship- they call me mommy, they never see their mom, so to them I'm their mom. I've cut down quite a bit on their TV watching, but the younger one still prefers to do that over play or other activities. Sometimes it seems as though he's being punished when he's asked to turn off the TV and play with his toys!! How much TV do your kids watch a day?Answer Question

i dont restrict the time the tv/computer/video games are on in my house and its never been a battle and the kids really only use these things about 3hrs a day on the weekends and about 1hr during school weeks.....i've never made it a big deal so they dont make it a big deal , we do a lot of outdoor activities and the kids are all involved in some kind of sports or programs outside the house so the time the tv is on is kinda wind down time mostly unless we are watching a movie...
