Kid’s First TV

How old should kids be before they get their own televisions in their own rooms?

I received one when I was in third grade, which caused quite a stir in my class because I was the only kid who had one. Did that turn me into a TV addict? Not at all. In fact, as an adult, I haven’t had a TV in my room since I moved out of my parents’ house. (When I moved, I still had that same TV from third grade. I rarely replace anything if it still works!) I am working on my TV script and screenwriting career so perhaps there is some lingering affect after all. The irony there is that when one writes scripts, one has little time to watch TV because writing is so time-consuming.

What do you think? How old should kids be before they get their own TV’s? Should they ever get their own TV’s?
