  • eye rollingmy mom didn't allow us to have a tv until age 10!!!! it was horrible, i think it was very silly of her. it didn't make me a better person..i guess she was trying to protect us from the corruptions of the big bad world.

  • Nope. We had TV but my parents never sprung for cable until about 6 years ago, after we were all out of the house!

  • We did not have a tv until I was in my teens but I never got in the habit of watching it alot.
    Now we do not have a tv in our home and my son never asks about having one.
    We have never had cable

  • For a period of time, we didn't have a TV and when we did get one, we only got one channel. Cable did not come to where we lived until I was 16. I enjoy reading and passed the time that way.
