Re: Do your kids have a t.v. in their room?

nope, no tvs in any bedrooms - we have a tv in the living room and one in each family room (so 3 total in the whole house)

yep. We have a TV in each room. My children watch 30 min of TV at night before bed. I watch several programs at night in my bed when the kids are down for the night. My bigger kids (12 and 13) watch about 2 hours at night.

Re: Do your kids have a t.v. in their room?

My kids are only 2 and 5 mos, so no - they don't. But, I don't plan on allowing them to have a TV in their room until they are *at least* teenagers, and even then I'm not so sure. DH is a TVaholic so I'm not sure how realistic that is...although by the time they are teenagers there will probably be some invention way cooler than TV anyhow.

We DO have one in our bedroom, and the baby cosleeps with me. But I didn't vote that way because he's only 5mos old for cripes sake and he'll be in his own room before he's old enough to acknowledge it.

Re: Do your kids have a t.v. in their room?

I put other because I find there is a vast difference between what I DO, and what my mom does. My mom has a TV in the kids room with TV CHANNELS in it. Like cable. They watch TV in their rooms a lot. (They are older though)

I have a telivision in there but its not hooked up to our dish.

Its just for DVD's that I put on sometimes. Not even every day.

Re: Do your kids have a t.v. in their room?

Yep, its in 4 year old DS's room...it was originally so DH could play playstation and not take up the family room/living room tv...we finally got satellite hooked up to the kids tv though. Everything but PBS, Sprout, and Nick Jr. has parental locks on it, mostly they just watch disney movies in there while DH and I are watching tv in the living room. We don't have a tv in our bedroom at all...just DS's and the one in the living room.

Re: Do your kids have a t.v. in their room?

Could have used some more options, but it's ok, I voted other.
My older boys (13 in a couple weeks) have a computer in their room and their monitor is a flat screen TV with an internal antenna so they pick up channels without cable or anything. My younger boys don't have a TV in their room and probably won't until they get a computer set up like the big boys. Our youngest co-sleeps with us, and we do have a TV, but it's not "his". He has a bed in other room w/o a TV, but sleeps with us 85% of the time.
