My DD is just 5 years old. She is studying in Junior kindergarten. She likes watching cartoons in television. How much time I should give her to watch T.V? She is not much interested in playing outdoor games. I don't like her watching T.V for long. How long your kids watch T.V on School days and on holidays? And at what time do they sleep?

My girls ( almost 6 and 3.5) watch a few hours a week usually.  40 minutes on Friday, and 40 minutes on Saturday, but we also use it sometimes when we need the break or when they are not feeling well.  Neither of them watched any till they were 2, but DS has seen much more already.

Ds probably watches an hour a day. I don't feel bad about it but I used to. It helps a lot during transitions (waking up, lunch, dinner, bed). Obviously we read too and we go on a long daily walk and to the park. It is what it is.
