What TV Limits Should I Set For My Child?

Studies show that the brain is more active sleeping then watching TV. This is especially important to know because our children spend too much time in front of the TV. Controlling television watching is one way to immediately and directly aid your child's success in school. Children who watch spend less time watching TV spend more time reading and doing homework. Below are some suggestions as to how to limit television watching according to "The Mom Book Goes To School:

1. No television on during mealtimes

2. No television on school days, or no television on school days until everyone has finished all their work and a half hour of leisure reading.

3. No television before completing household task.

4. Allot your child a particular number of television viewing hours per week, and let the child choose how to use the time with your supervision. Unused hours could be cashed in for a small treat.

5. National TV Turn-off Week is scheduled for every April. Make this a celebration time, with family game nights and outings. Your child might just learn how easy it is to live without television.
