Does your LO have a TV in their bedroom? If not, do you plan to put one in, and at what age?

Do you have a TV in your bedroom?

Yes, he has a TV in his bedroom - his room doubles as his playroom, so it's where he spends most of his time.

Yes, we have a TV in our bedroom, but i honestly cant remember the last time it was turned on. The only time i'm really in my bedroom for an extended period of time is while i'm sleeping.

The kids do not have a tv in their rooms. We have no plans to do so.

Connor doesn't have a TV in his room.

We have a TV in or bedroom. Every night after the kids go to bed we get in bed and watch a show together to unwind and spend time together.

Grace doesn't. I don't know...at some point we might put one in there, but not until she's much older.

We don't have one in our bedroom, either. But we do usually watch something on Netflix on the laptop in our bedroom at night (on the nights he is home).

Addison did for a short time but we took it out. The boys don't have one either.

We have one in our room but never watch it because the living room TV is bigger.

She doesn't have one, but I'm guilty of sending her to "nap time" with the Kindle Fire, and she just plays games/ watches netflix for two hours.

Kelen doesn't have one in his room, and he won't until he can afford to pay for one, and maybe not even then.

We have one in ours. Hubby needs light/noise to sleep, so it's on when he sleeps in the bedroom. It's off when he sleeps on the couch. (Recliner couch helps his back)

She does not have one in her room and no future plans for putting one in.
I have also sent her to a nap in her bed with her Leappad when I know she won't actually fall asleep but want her to have "quiet time"

We have one in our room. dh usually goes to bed and watches sports while he falls asleep.
Some mornings Violet and I will lay in bed, snuggle and watch cartoons

Technically Rylan does. She sleeps in the living room most nights.

Eli doesn't, Daryn does and we do. We don't watch TV in the bedroom at all and neither does Daryn. We should really stop paying for the extra hookups. I have no immediate plans to put a TV in Eli's room but if I did, it probably wouldn't have cable access until he's in his preteens.

Same here...

We had an extra TV since we upgraded the one in the family room and we could have put it in our bedroom but I don't like TVs in rooms...i feel like it isolates the family and would rather have one common area for all of us to hang out and watch. So we put it in office instead...

Yes, I have a TV in my room

Dashaun has one in his room now but after realizing it was messing with his bedtime schedule, he is only allowed to watch it on the weekends and not during the week.
