I'm struggling with this right now. Normally I do, but we finished our school year yesterday, and it's butt cold today (and snowing....). I'm tempted to give them a week of learning to schedule their own time....
It is the same all year. In the summer I don't restrict at all. They spend a lot of time going outside. During the cold months we have limited time for computers. I don't restrict TV viewing. They watch learning shows the most. I don't watch TV during the day so they mostly follow my lead. I only recently instilled limits on computers. They were complaining they didn't very much free time. They asked for help limiting computer time. Computer time is great for learning but I talk to them why having variety in life is important
I restrict it year round.....I usually turn it on when the weather is really icky....Like raining for days on end. Otherwise, it is usually off until around 6 so I can watch the news and then the kids are all about watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune.
Yes we do restrict tv time all year round most days the tv doesn't come on at all. The girls really don't care to watch much tv. We don't have cable. We watch Netflix and they are only allowed to watch educational shows.
