DD is 9 years old. She hasn't watched much TV at all in her life. She doesn't show any interest in it no matter where she is nor how old she was at the time. We live in San Diego and get less than 10 inches of rain per year. She really dislikes the days when it does rain at lunchtime at school. They pop in a movie and everyone eats lunch in the auditorium. It took her two years to figure out where to sit so she didn't have to watch the movie and could be comfortable eating her lunch. She doesn't like the noise of that scenario, either. She chooses to sit on the edge of the stage BEHIND the TV. She finds TV boring and somewhat scary, even G rated cartoon-type movies. I think it is the noise more than the content that scares her. She reads way beyond her grade level and can handle far scarier content in writing than in movies. Part of that is she can imagine whatever scene she wants in a book, but the other part is she just doesn't like a lot of loud noises. She doesn't like audio books at all.
We do own two TVs and we watch movies once in awhile. We also own a Wii and play family games once in awhile. In addition, she has access to a computer (and a typing program and several computer games) and has since she was three. None of these are issues. She simply isn't that interested.
When she is at grandpa's, where the TV is often on, she either ignores it or asks him to turn it off. When he first moved here, he tried to get her interested in watching TV because he thought we were "depriving her".
I nipped that in the bud by saying she could watch whatever she wanted at grandpa's or nothing at all, her choice (age 4.5). I gave him a general guideline of what we felt was appropriate for her sensitivities and handed him a few DVDs. He respected the content concerns we had for her and made an effort to bond with her over TV. She watched one half-hour show with him once a week for a month or two and was over it. (Dragon Tales, I believe.) When he tried other things, he saw for himself she wasn't interested and we were not "depriving" her of anything. They mostly play outside or hide-n-seek and card games and ordinary kid stuff since about age 5. I recently learned he has been trying to teach her solitaire on the computer. She apparently told him he can play it on the computer while she plays with a deck of cards and they race.
