My husband and I have the conversation about no TV often. He and i do not see eye to eye because of our cultural differences but our kids will not be watching much TV at all. Sorry it does nothing to stimulate their minds whatsoever. Minimal TV and most will be educational. I want my chid to fall in love with reading & music the way I did.

In my household, TV only after dinner on Thursday & Friday nights and cartoons on Saturday mornings and 60mins on Sunday evenings. We had after school programs Monday to Wed.
It's sad how many kids are missing out on getting discipline in life because parents leave the TV to babysit them.
no tv in my household until after 8pm when dinner is finished. and by that time all homework and chores are done and my kids are too sleepy to even think about turning it on. that s*** is evil. i found my daughter the series of the babysitter's club books 2 years ago and she never touched them cause her ass was addicted to the disney channel where the little 11 year olds are wearing padded push up bras! WTF?!? since we've cut out tv she's read all of those books and her grades went from c's to straight a's. hell, american's should adopt the Trini way of life when it comes to the tv but instead they're too lazy to interact with the kids and let tv be the bbysitter.
I got Tv with my mom and her family.... but my Dad's people... Nope... Music and Books son! I would go months with no TV more than the news.
