How much TV should children be allowed to watch each day?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on May 25, 2006
“Probably an hour a day. It’s good for children to get out and get some exercise; otherwise they get fat.”
“Less than an hour, because they should be reading, talking to their family, running and playing or finding some other way to expand their minds.”
“I’m going to go with a program or two, so a half an hour to an hour. I’ve never been a TV fan myself. I really like being outside, and I think it comes from playing outside a lot when I was a kid.”
“I’ll say 30 minutes to an hour. That’s how much I watched when I was little. They should have their days filled with other activities.”
