We don't have a set time limit. On a rainy day, it can save our lives And it's been rather rainy lately. They play a large part out of the day with their friends and if the sun is shining we're outside for 7hrs at a time.
It's based on age. My doctor said my kids should only be watching 30 minutes of tv a day and I laughed inside. Their tv is always on. They are hardly ever paying attention to it but when they are it's on Nick Jr. so it's educational for the most part.
She never usually watches more than an hour a day, and she's 4. I prefer for her to play with her toys or in the garden, if the weather allows.
In Winter, she'll obviously watch more often than in Summer. Playhouse Disney is the only channel we allow, even though it drives me crazy!
what you all said about sums up how it is here too. the boys dont have a limit but they also rarely finish a show. it has to be very new and interesting. if a movie is on, well they get paused more often then finished. the twins are very outside type boys or building/inventing something downstairs. i do, however limit drake sometimes on games when its a nice day out. he doesent mind the gentle reminder that there is an outside world waiting.
We don't really have a limit on how much tv the kids watch but it is never more than 2 hrs a day really. The kids would rather play with their toys or colour. It is always on Playhouse Disney, nothing else. In the summer we are always outside!! Tv has never really been a issue or problem in my house so haven't had to monitor it.
The younger kids I can entertain with learning things and they don't really watch a whole lot. Maybe an hour or so a day. Once they're old enough to read, self-motivate etc I make a rule that they can only watch as many hours of tv as they do other things. So to get an hour they have to do an hour of other things.
