I think children of young ages shouldn't watch tv. If your child wants a tv think of an age which you think is appropriate and say to the child "when you get to this age if you have been helping out lots at home and doing well at school than you can get a tv"
Watching TV at bedtime is thought to make it harder for children to sleep. Also, if you are not around it is possible your child will choose to watch programmes that might frighten them or raise worries which are hard for you to address because you do not know what they saw on TV. The key is to agree age appropriate rules on TV viewing and not to leave children of any age alone for hours with a TV anywhere in the house. Make sure you drop by to see how they are and if they would like to get involved in something other than watching TV. One rule you might want to agree is that some programmes are watched together as a family. There is something odd about each person in a family watching the same programme alone. So-called event TV – TV programmes that get people talking and that people want to watch together as they are broadcast rather than record for viewing later (e.g. a football cup final) present ideal opportunities for a shared experience and shared experiences are what build strong family relationships.
No they should not because they could watch bad things
Children should have tv in there bedrooms because it helps them get to sleep but other children like watching tv if there is nothing to do. Otherwise they maybe they put something scary.
Yes it will make them smarter
