 How many hours per day do you allow your children to watch television or movies? 

Are they restricted to certain channels or shows?  If so, which ones?

Ummm...it is on all day they don't watch it alot though. Lately I've been turning it off since I found out how much electricity your cable box uses. It is restricted to certain channels :O)

my 2 almost teens probably watch 2 hours a week total. They aren't much into tv. They have to watch age appropriate shows.

They only watch it occasionally. Not everyday, today all they watched was Ratatouille.

Depends on the day and what's going on. If I need to keep them busy to clean or what not I turn it on but if it's a normal day and I don't have anythig to do and it's not a park day then I usually am the one watching tv ( food network)

About 1-2 hours but depends on the day. They are restricted to certain channels. Some shows are a no like Spongebob and my son can not watch Cartoon Network after a certain time.

My daughter only cares to watch Nick Jr so this works perfectly for that.

It depends on the day. My teen dvr's the shows she likes to watch and catches up on them throughout the week. My sons watch mostly Disney channel and nick.
