How much television do you think is too much? My son watches a lot of television and I try to make it educational here and there. But I think that sometimes it should be limited so they can do something else constructive.

When I was researching and interviewing for my book, I learned that children shouldn't be exposed to more than two hours of media per day. Media includes television, computer use, video games, and cell phone use (texting, primarily). So, I try to keep tabs on that with my children. We do a lot of reading, art making, and board game playing when they're not playing with their toys. :-)
