Do you believe kids watch too much television?

There are some kids who do watch way too much television. I was one of them when I was in school. I'm trying to limit how much television. Although it's a little difficult with my work schedule the way it is...and the cold weather. My kids are going to spend plenty of time outside once it gets warmer out. We have a nice fenced in backyard for both of them to play in.

Yes, they do watch too much television, and spend too much time on the internet. We only had network channels when my sister and I were kids so neither of us watched much TV.

Half of the growing up, we had antenna vision, and the rest, we had cable. I sometimes watched too much tv, and the rest of the time I didn't I liked to read books sometimes.

Yeah, too much tv isn't good. If you're worried, buy them books. You can get books pretty cheap on Amazon, coloring books, art supplies, just anything to keep them away and active.

Actually, I'm thinking about she doesn't really watch that much tv, especially with her being in preschool. She's not home during that time. She does her share of coloring and playing with her dolls. She loves to "scrapbook" with my mom.

Yes, they do, and I used to do it too. Asamom and a teacher, I really don't think it's a big deal unless we over eat. Let kids watch tv rather than going outside and get chased by a s. predator!

yes, kids today are watching too much TV...teach them to learn sports, in which they would enjoy and they can exercise...or teach them to bake cookies, you can have fun with your children while doing this...or maybe play board games... ^,^
