Do Parents or Kids Watch More Television

Boob Tube Balance: Do You Watch More TV Than Your Child?

Who's tuning in in your home? Whether your DVR is full or you're a family that only watches television for educational purposes, it's likely that either the parents or the kids spend more time in front of the set. If you add up all the hours your household spends viewing everything from cartoons to movies, who owns the remote?

I don't even have cable. We watch a few shows here and there online if there are some that interest us, but we aren't a cable tv family. We do watch movies though - disney and pg for the 2 yo and we watch movies after they go to bed sometimes.

Same here, Carri. She's 13 months now, so she hasn't grasped the concept of TV yet and I pretend like it doesn't even exist. But as soon as she goes to bed, I take the remote ;)

My son is 20 months so we don't let him watch TV. He'd much rather be outside in the dirt or listening to music, which I think is great. The hubby and I catch up on our TiVo after Blake goes to bed. :)
