Maybe an adult.

Thank you for the information,

There is debate & much discussion on the issue.

TV watching should be limited to 1-2 hours a day of quality programs.

The less is better.

I hope this information helps.

I was asking in general. IF it's different for a child what would it be?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 4 years ago.
In case of children less than 2 years of age, it is advised not to watch TV.

For older children, it is same 1-2 hours or less.
