Our solution as a family is going to be a TV free day each week. I'm going to make it Friday.
Firstly we have after school activites on a Friday and we also do our family Fun Night on a Friday - so hopefully the whinging and whining will be less. I'm going to make a list of alternative activites for us ALL to do during this TV free time - like reading, riding bikes, craft etc.
I'll let you know how it all goes. I just hope I remember as I am usually pretty brain dead by Friday. I also just read that over 45% of homes have 3 or more TV's in their house with most children over the age of 4 having one in their rooms. I must admit we have 3 Tv's in our house although one doesn't get used. Rhianna does not have one in her room. I would love to not have one in the bedroom but Bill likes to watch TV in bed some nights and they are a godsend when the kids are sick.
I'd love to know how many TV's you have in your home?
