    I voted other. I don't place restrictions on TV/game time. The little ones (2 and 3 years old) don't watch much TV of their own choosing. They're too busy running around playing together, etc. They watch maybe about an hour a day or so... give or take. On the other hand my 7 year old daughter spends hours daily playing Minecraft, Roblox (or whatever it's called... lol) and a couple others. Her PC is in our dining room (which is really our computer room) so there's always someone keeping an eye on her. At 7 years old she's expressed interest in learning about how computer games are made, making YouTube videos, etc. and I personally find this to be a good thing. If these are things that interest her they could provide great opportunities for her to learn and even make a career out of if she so chooses. Her birth father actually recently made his own start-up company programming Indie video games. She certainly would have a great resource to learn about both programming as well as entrepreneurship from him outside of what I would be able to provide if she pursues this.

    Oh man, this is such a source of guilt for me. My girl has pretty much unlimited time. She doesn't really have peers who want to play with her or vice versa, so she has become very attached to the internet. I've tried to "childproof" it, but have essentially given up. Ugh, so much guilt!

    My daughter usually tries to keep it to around six hours a day, but if we're on vaca, it can be more like eight. She has no siblings either.
    Don't beat yourself up too much, dcgmomma. I always say at least she's not out blowing people up or robbing banks......but I get it.
