I have a 7 and 4 year old. I let them watch an average of about an hour a day... a little more on the weekend. If it's nice outside they may watch no TV that day, if we have a rainy day it might be 2 hours. We have a no video games policy during weekdays. Nicola @ Twisty Noodle

I have a 7 year old and he is allowed to watch approximately 1 hour of television a day. It really depends on the weather. We like the outdoors...

There is a rule in my household where there would be no TV and electronics from Mondays to Thursdays. Friday evening, I allow my son to use the electronics or watch tv for approximately 2 hours and Sat, I leave it flexible as long as he spends 1 hour reading a book and Sunday, by 1pm, all electronics and tv is taken away from him.

Since our oldest was little (she is now 20 and in college), the rules have been a half hour on the computer, other than homework time, and a half hour of TV per night. Very rarely do my three kids utilize their TV time as they are all busy with homework and extra-curricular activities. The weekends become a little more relaxed, but they still only have an 1 1/2-2 hours of screen time per day. We encourage activities like Wii to satisfy their techno desires.
