My 3 year old is increasingly interested in watching more TV all the time! Sometimes when I tell him it's time to turn the TV off and go play he throws a fit and putting him in time out only works part of the time. He is only allowed to watch 3 PBS cartoons or 1 movie a day. I try really hard to make sure he doesn't spend too much time in front of the TV as I don't feel it is a very productive thing to do, but sometimes I need that time to get things done that he can't help me with (like a shower!). So, what are the rules regarding TV time in your house? What are your kids allowed to watch and how to you stem the fits when you tell them it's time to turn the TV off?
