    Default When do your kids watch tv?

    At our house a movie usually goes on first thing in the morning so I can shower and make breakfast etc.. Then a movie goes on at night. Some days its more (sick.. Rain etc)

    How much is your tv on?

    DS watches Playschool first thing so I can shower and In The Night Garden while I cook dinner. Sometimes a bit more if I'm having a tough day.

    Tv goes on for breakfast and lunch so DS will sit still and eat.

    I'm 37 1/2 weeks preg so have been using tv a bit more then usual lately so I can have some rest.

    Also if he asks to watch tv his allowed, he doesn't ask much or when it's on he doesn't sit watching it for long so I don't mind.

    In the evenings when I am getting dinner ready, not usually in the morning as we go out. Sometimes my daughter will watch during my son's nap.

    I don't have the tv on during the day but they quite often watch whatever is on abc2 when I'm prepping dinner.

    Weekdays the tv isn't on really. We watch the news during dinner but that's about it. On Saturday though the tv is on for most of the day and in the afternoon the boys and I have a movie date where we watch1-2 movies and make popcorn together. Because it's on so rarely during the week, I don't have an ounce of guilt haha!
    Although if the boys are super tired/grumpy and I'm desperate to get dinner on I will resort to ABC2!

    At the risk of being deemed a bad mother (a comment which would roll off my back if said) I admit that tv is on all the time in our house when we are at home.

    DS goes to day care 3 days a week when I work so no tv those days but when we get home it goes on.

    it is often just background noise, but still it is on.

    I sometimes worry that DS watches too much tv, but the amount he watches will dramatically decrease next year when he goes to school.

    I used to stress about how much tv the kids watched but noticed that once DD1 was at school it was barely on at all during the week.
