Do you monitor the amount of time your children watch tv in a week? If so, how much is acceptable. My 2 year old is allowed 20 hrs a week.

not too much as she is always online,in her books,or on didney channel. She is also outside riding her bike alot as well. I do have her off the tv watching by 9. It helps for bed time.

oh, I agree with that! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who sees that as a problem anymore.

my girls in school get about 3 hours a day, but my 2 year old at home watches a lot. loves it. Probably too much, but I try to find educational stuff too. Also plays through out the day.

My 8 year old is allowed 5 hours a week, and she has to earn it. She starts her week with 5 hours worth of tokens and then she loses and earns tokens based on her behavior.

I love it! That is a wonderful program. I definiately might be adapting that one, in the years to come. Thanks for such a great idea!
