Bhavna, firstly, if your guests are there for a short time, maybe you could just grin and bear it. But if it is a long term affair, again, it is time to set some rules. Make a time when you will have a talk with your daughter. Give it a name- "mother-daughter discussion time" and make it a rule, that she should listen to you at that time and you will listen to what she has to say. That way she wont feel it is unfair. Then once you have her attention, explain how it is "physically" bad for her to watch TV for a long time. Eye doctor says 2 hrs at a stretch (you have the licence to exaggerate, I do so) is the max the child's eye should be subjected to. So my child is now allowed to watch 1 hour of TV and ipad combined. It is up to her to choose what she wants to watch, but after one hour she should be done.

In order to get a good result for your child i think its ok to be a bad guy once in a while, be firm with your child as well as the guests and explain to both of them the importance of what you want . I am sure if you are honest it will work out for you and your daughter ..
