I've edited this post because I've come to the conculsion that as long as it's in moderation (for us meaning a few shows every few days) then it's okay. TV isn't the enemy to us as I thought, only if it takes over and keeps us from other things we should be doing. DD has done well with only 1 show every few days and we've been out of the house more at night time that it hasn't been an issue with DH much...we also gave him a hunting stories book for Christmas so he reads ALOt more! I'll keep up his stock on those!!! Moderation is always the key and hard to do sometimes!
