I’d never let my kids watch TV before they turned two.

Did you swear to this before you became a mom?

Yes, and I did pretty well other than when my stepkids (the embodiment of too much tv at a young age) came over and couldn't handle going without.

I wasn't one of those moms but my son was almost 4 before we had cable or internet in the house so he didn't watch it until then aside from the occasional times he was with a sitter or family member.

 Yes, and still do. My kids are 11,8,7,5,3,and 1. We rarely even have the tv on. We prefer music.

I had all sorts of things I was never going to do...lol...most of them I stuck with, TV was not :( It's not like it was excessive, though (and still isn't)

Nope. Not big on making grand statements like that.

Nope, the tv is background noise for all of us except dh who had restricted tv time as a kid. If it's on, he can't look away. I can do many other things and not even hear it and so can my kids.
