Is a television OK in a child's room?

Would you allow your child to have a television in their room? Why or why not? If it is ok, what age do you feel it is appropriate????

We did the TV for their 13'th birthday.....but if I had to do it all over again I think that I would have waited until older.

DH tried TV's in the girls' rooms when he first got into the house and he ended up taking them out. OSD brought a TV back with her but she won't help pay for an extra cable box, so she's letting her teammates borrower it in their dorm room. I don't know that we will allow YSD to have a TV in her room. We will have an extra one in the basement when we finish fixing it up, so that will be enough.
