Tools to Curb Your Kids’ TV Habits

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Cartoon TVAccording to the TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board, about 72%  parents have rules about TV use.  Even if you limit your child’s TV watching to just a few hours in the afternoon/evenings or a few hours on weekends, you may still need a refresher course on how to monitor what your child is watching and how much.

“Every new school year introduces a unique set of changes for each family, and the TV season is no different,” says Jim Dyke, TV Watch Executive Director. “Children are a year older and television rules may have changed based on age and the family’s tastes and values.  It is a perfect time to consider those rules and review the available tools to enforce standards.”

TV Watch (televisionwatch.org), a non-profit organization that “educates parents about existing tools to manage their families’ TV viewing,” shares the following resources to keep an eye on your kids.
