    Default Tv's in kids room??

    So my girls share a room, they are 4 & 6!! There pop has told me that he has a spare tv and DVD player That he said we could put in the kids room!!
    They haven't been told anything about this as I'm not sure I want it in there!! Dp and fil think that it shouldn't be a problem but I'm a lil sceptical!!!
    Does anyone's kids have a tv in their room and how old we're they when u put it in ?

    What is the question? Are you wanting to know should you let them have a tv in their room, or others thoughts on tvs in kids rooms?

    I personally am against tvs in childrens bedrooms at any age, much less 4 and 6, I see bedrooms as primarily a place of rest and sleep and having a tv would not be conjucive to that sort of thing IMO.

    Nah no tv in bedrooms till teenagers. It helps to promote more family time and communication amongst the home. Much better in my opinion.

    My brother wanted to give one to my 8yo but I personally don't like them, and certainly not in bedrooms. Not even my own bedroom.

    My BIL told my DH when I was pregnant with DD1 that we'd be just like them and have a tv in her bedroom by the time she was three. I strongly disagreed. She's 6 and shares with her 4 year old sister + they have a 2 year old brother and we are a one tv family...in the loungeroom.

    No tv in the bedrooms here....especially not at the ages they are now!

    You also need to consider that you won't be able to monitor what they watch (and when!). Ask pop to sell the TV and use the money to buy them books instead!

    I have one in DD's room.

    Why? Cos she can watch it (WHEN WE SAY SO) in there if we want to use the TV in the loungeroom (or just don't want her out here for whatever reason).

    Our house is rather small... her being able to shut her door means she's not forced to listen to DP shooting people on whatever game he's playing...

    We just have rules - it's on when we say, it's off when we say. That's it. She follows these rules. She's 6.

    Dh and i were very against no tv in ds1's room until recently. Ds1 is nearing 4yrs and ds2 is 9mths. We let ds1 watch a movie occassionally on his portable dvd player in his room for a bit of quiet time and peace from ds1 who is on the move but at least with a portable one it can be removed from the room. We have lots of time outdoors and plenty of family time.
