How much TV is too much TV? My 7 year-old step daughter is addicted to television. She can watch for hours at a time without getting bored. And when she is done with her usual shows, she asks to watch DVDs.
I have to admit that her shows are funny and entertaining but it's just getting too much. When I suggest doing something else like arts and crafts, reading a book or even going to the market beside our house, the answer is always "I'd rather watch TV".
I remember loving TV when I was her age but I also remember turning into a couch potato soon after.
How much TV is ok? Does the "you get an hour of TV per day really work"?
