Do you let your kids watch before they begin school?

 No way!  Once the tv comes out, everything stops.  We get school done AND chores before the tv comes on.

I really dont care.  We dont school first thing in the morning. When he has freetime scheduled its really freetime. He can do as he pleases. We have some freetime in the am at lunch and then in the evenings.

Nope that would never work for my kids.    We do chores and school as well before ANY screen time. (Video games, TV, or any computer that is not school related)

We don't allow TV and many other things during the week.  All of our kids are teens and don't have a problem with it.

I think I'm the only one that allows it for the first hour we are awake.
