Debate: TV in Bedroom

tv bedroom 1

With a report out from the US stating that kids that have TVs in their bedrooms are twice as likely to be overweight and three times as likely to suffer from heart disease and diabetes as those that don't, we thought we'd start a debate.

Do your kids have TVs in their rooms? Will you let them once they get to a certain age? Do you limit the amount of TV they watch?

Tell us your thoughts on televisions in kids' bedrooms by sending us a comment below.

Our kids don't have TVs yet, but I think from around 13 we might let them. They have iPad's which are probably as bad but we limit the amount of time they are allowed on them.
Lolo says ...
We live in a small house, and most of the time we don't want to watch the same thing as the kids, so they have a TV in their shared room. We don't let them watch lots, but I don't see a problem with it!
Jessica says ...
We only allow our kids to watch 1 hour at the weekend. No TV during the week!
Jasmine says ...
We have 2 kids who both need the tv on to go to sleep so half an hour in bed at bedtime watching cartoons.
Vanessa says ...
We don't allow our kids to have a tv in their room. THey are 6, 4 and 8 weeks. We might when they are in their teens but would have to look at it at the time. Kids watch too much tv these days, they don't need it in their bedrooms as well. Would never get the kids to sleep.
Lisa says ...
We don't have a tv since our move into a new home it doesn't come with an aerial and it is something that is not on the immediate we can afford list we are now six months tv free and it has been the best thing ever for my four children. No I would definitely never let them have a tv in their room more for a social and accountable reason than anything
