tv time

How much is your tv on? it seems like ours is only off  when we're all in bed. A lot of the rime the girls aren't sitting watching it, it's just background noise, but the second i turn it off they whine for it to be on. My biggest reason for having it on so much is that the girls cause more trouble and fight more when it's off. Today I managed to give ours a little break, I made them keep it off for a few hours while they played. I think i'll do this each day, adding half an hour to the time it's off each day until we get down to a normal amount of tv. So... how much should your samsung HDTV be on each day anyway? I'm thinking an hour or two is probably more than normal for most houses, but I'd love to get down to that here. After all, there's always music to create background noise!
