DS1 mentioned wanting a TV for his room last week. So now DH has this brilliant idea that we should get the boys their own TV for their rooms. My gut says-no way.
DS1 is 10, DS2 is 8. They currently have a TV to share in our living room (we have a very large living room-considered a double living room). I am able to monitor what they watch and know when they are watching TV.
Neither boy has showed that they are responsible enough to not watch TV in the middle of the night or to get up for school without turning it on and watching it without being ready.
We have enough problems with them doing homework without adding a TV in the mix.
What are your thoughts? Would you put a TV in your kids bedroom? Do they have one now?
ETA: Wow, look at all the responses, lol. I started to read them yesterday but ran out of time. I will go through them though. I appreciate everyone's respose. DH and I are still discussing this but I think we're more than likely going to put the idea on hold and instead get the boys a game system.
