Nope.  It takes several hours for our brain to fully turn off after watching tv so no tv in the evenings for my kids.

On Fridays, they can watch for a while.  On Saturdays they watch for an hour and it goes off.  Any other day, no TV at bedtime.

I'll be the odd man out, lol.

Yes, our children are allowed to watch television before bed and all have television/cable/netflix in their bedrooms.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

No. My son is in bed at 7:30, can read until 8:30, but has radio until 8:45.

We just started extending his reading time because he was getting up at 4 am. It used to be lights out at 7:30 and radio until 7:45.

 No, my boys don't have tvs in their bedrooms and as long as they live in my house, they won't.  I don't have a tv in my bedroom either.

My girls move to the guest room on friday and saturday nights so long as we have nothing scheduled early for the next morning. In the guest room they get to watch one show on a dvd. After that lights out. Any other night is three books then lights out.
