How much time do you think we should allow children to watch television. I know TV is an idiot box and pure waste of time but then entertainment is also necessary for them. I am unable to figure out how much time we should let them watch TV. What is your view.

HI, I do let my son watch TV everyday,his favourite cartoon,Ultraman. Of course, I don't allow him to sit in front of the TV for long. I have limited his time on TV and let him play with his toys, read storybooks or learn colouring and writing. Once a while, I will let him watch Barney vcds,it is an educational vcds and I myself also accompany him ,automatically, I have learnt lot of nursery songs from there. I don't really set the time limit per day for my son on watching TV...but at least not more than 2 hours in a day. Sometimes, when I need to do my things in kitchen and in order to make him sit still, I have to on his favourite cartoon and at least,he can enjoy his show for half an hour without disturbing me. TV is a kind of entertainment for kids.As long as, we take the control on them,it should be fine.
