Ours is on ABC kids at 6am, then off for a while when the kids go outside to play, then back on later on. We even have it on before DS1 goes to school, but it doesn't go on in the afternoon til homework and reading is done. Kids in bed at 6pm- then we watch news, masterchef, then tv off at 8.30pm when we go to bed.

I like to have the tv, it's more a security thing. It's often on quietly but I don't know why I just feel better if it's on. It just stays on ABC2, I don't watch it and DD only watches Giggle and Hoot and just looks over occasionally. I think she would only spend about 20 minutes watching tv a day. Probably not even that. Maybe 10.

I hate quiet too, either the tv is on or music, I can't have a silent house.
The kids watch a fair bit of tv, DS2 won't let me do anything and has no sense of danger or anything, so he can't be with me in the kitchen when I am cooking and he can't be left to his own devices if I am having a shower etc. So I let them watch while I am doing stuff that needs to be done.

She's allowed to put it on once she's had breakfast on weekend/holidays. It doesn't go on at all on school mornings.
It's on some of the day on weekends/holidays, but it's not usually on much until about 5.30pm on weekdays... and then it's just Brady Bunch or something...

Whenever I need a break!!
But generally in the morning when they wake up, and after dinner.

We don't have a television, so never.

Very rarely. Playschool sometimes - once a week or so (we watch together while I breast feed the little one if I am running out of steam). That said, there has been no TV at all since we moved a month ago and the new house doesn't seem to have an antenna. Don't miss it at all.

Not at all until she was nearly 6 because we didn't have one. Then it was a dvd on the weekend because we had no reception here. Now (almost 9) she watches it sporadically. Some weeks it only goes on for the Friday night kids movie, other times it goes on before story time. We can go weeks without it on. Olympic time it will be on pretty much all the time outside work hours lol.

As an aside we are not really a tv household anyway. But our paediatrician talked about limiting screen time (that includes iPhone iPad etc) under 2 at DD1's 6 week check. We will do the same for DD2. It's based on American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines and the Royal Australasian College of Physicians is similar.

Yes,screen time is very limited here for dd. Not that she is overly interested anyway.
