Why do people put TVs in their children's rooms?

Lazy parenting in my opinion. Kids don't need a TV in their room. Get them some books instead. Encourage them to draw or read instead of plopping down in front of a boob tube.

We don't allow tvs in bedrooms so ours don't have them.

I don't call other parents names, but it isn't something we allow in our house

So I'm guessing you only read and draw as well? 😂

I don't but having a tv doesn't mean the kids aren't doing other things. Watching a show in the bedroom is no different than watching it in the livingroom.

Yes, in bed at night I read, I don't watch TV.

My kids swear that they are the only kids they know without TVs in their rooms.  I tell them that I am so sorry that they are so deprived, but that is not going to change anything.

I know for a fact that my son only has one friend (that he regularly sees) who DOES have a TV in his room, and that kid is a mess anyway.

Because I don't feel like sharing the living room one.

Not every kid with a TV in their rooms is watching them in night instead of sleeping or reading. Some only use them during waking hours during the day and my kids don't have them in their rooms but I don't see the issue for those that choose too.
