Tv or not?

My ds just asked if our old tv could go in his room. I told him to clean it up and we'd talk about it. He is outside almost all day after school until around 7 when he has to get ready for bed at 8 so it would really only be watched on rainy days or a little before bed. Good idea or bad?

All my kids have had tv's in their rooms their whole life, just about.

I personally won't allow TVs in bedrooms. Bedrooms are for sleeping. My husband has wanted to put a TV in our room and their room, but we already have 2 TVs (living room and playroom) and I feel that's enough.

All of our kids (ages 12, 14, 15, and 17) have TV's in their rooms. It's never been a problem for us, they rarely watch TV, and most often use them for video games, though even that is rare.

Also, I had a TV in my room pretty much my entire life, from age 5 until I got married at 20. I couldn't sleep without a TV on until then, and even then had issues and would sleep in the living room. I was 23 before I could fall asleep without a TV easily. That's why I won't allow it.

How old is he? 

I don't think I will allow a tv in my kids' rooms until they are 12-13.

Bad, bad, bad in my experience anyway.

I'm ok with it, but not cable, satellite, etc.
