    I have never had a TV in my house, when I grew up and now either. It is SO nice. I don’t really care much for real tv, we watch some dvds sometimes, but not on a regular basis!! The main thing is that I don’t want shows to take away my children’s creativity. I was SO creative growing up and it has been so helpful for the rest of my life so far. I don’t get bored very easily and I want my girls to be like that too…

    Good ideas about the time control devices and chips. I like to treat viewing as a treat for the kids, not something they can expect every day. I’m glad that so far they still treasure books, storytimes and learning to read as much as anything.

    TV time is very limited around our home…nothing scheduled or planned. The only rule is, I tell them they can watch one cartoon, or one movie, whatever it is and if there is complaining or arguing, I walk over and turn it off. If they complain about that, I let them know there will be no TV the next day…It only took them a couple of times to realize they need to just smile and enjoy it ;) Simple.
