HECK NO!!! They have to earn the 1 hour that they are allowed and most days they lose that before dinner.
Quoting mem82:I think I'm the only one that allows it for the first hour we are awake.
Yep, but DD just turned 4. I try to put things on like Little Pim's French or Preschool Prep or Magic School Bus, etc so at least it's somewhat educational. We don't start school until after lunch because that's what works for us.
if they wake up before me

Not unless there is something I HAVE to get done before we start school, and then he only watches like one curious george episode (15 mins). Then, it is time for school! But this only happens once in a great while; most of the time, we don't watch tv at all!
Once in a while, during breakfast. But it's usually on a morning that DH and I haven't seen each other for a couple days so we are catching up (he works nights usually), so the kids get a little break.. But they have been good so far about turning it off and getting to work.
But typically, no electronics until school work and chores are done.
