When my three eldest girls were very young they were allowed to to watch TV from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on weekdays. On weekends, they were allowed to watch from 10:00 a.m. up to 8:00 p.m., as long as they're done with their homework. Daughters #1,2 and 3 usually watched cartoons and VHS tapes of "wholesome" movies. When daughter #4 and my son were born, TV-viewing restrictions became lax. I was just so harassed I let them watch TV or tapes just as long as they're done with their school work and are in bed by 9:00 p.m. I guess it's now harder to limit a child's TV time as there are so many channels available on cable, downloadable movies from the internet, and availability of DVD's.

I do not actually limit Ethan's TV time. I just let him watch his favorite shows just as long as he does not stay up late. We share one TV and when my show is on, I just tell him " my turn" and he readily gives in. The problem is Ethan has been pestering me to buy a great-big-plasma TV - to set up a sort of a  big screen center in the house. I definitely want one too. Who knows? I might be able to afford it and buy one before Christmas.
