To help kids take responsibility for their TV time, and choose shows wisely, try using TV-time coupons. Each day, give your child several 1/2 hour TV coupons (you decide how many). The child must "cash in" a coupon every time he wants to watch TV. If he runs out, that's it for the day. It should end TV arguments, and teach your child to save coupons for things he really wants to watch.
