Graciously stolen from /. who graciously stole it from The Guardian. This is an interesting topic for me, since I have a near 3-year old toddler and a 6 month old. We already do limit his time in front of the TV (in fact, the only thing he's watch as of recent is Thomas the Tank Engine), but we have friends with a 3-year old who watches Ghost Hunters, MythBusters, and others with his parents, along with playing Borderlands and some games that are FPS (not sure which), and I can already see the signs of ADD or ADHD starting.. Anyway, I know that the answer is better parenting (which is why I'm keeping mine away from the TV as much as I can) and can't tell others how to raise their kids, but with as much media and information and entertainment getting blasted at us and on other mediums (smartphones, pads/tablets, etc.), the line between TV and getting people's entertainment and information is about as clear as a Mississippi mud pie in front of a black hole. So, whether you lot are parents or not, where do you think the limits should be? and not just with TV, but with every medium that info and entertainment can reach you and children? BL.
