Los Angeles: Actor Hugh Jackman doesn`t allow his children to watch television or play computer games during weekdays.
The 42-year-old actor says he got the idea from a friend and implemented it for his children Oscar, 11, and Ava, 6.
"A buddy of mine has a rule that I installed: No screens during the week. No TV, or computer, or anything like that," People.com quoted Jackman as saying.
"Kids nowadays have very little time. They seem to be at school longer than ever. They have all sorts of after school activities. By the time you have eaten and showered and dressed, it is over. So there is not much time for it anyway," he added.
