Some times and it also will depend on what they are watching. Its great if they are watching and learning too. Good language and they talk well.

My two younger boys (not in school) spent their tv time watching treehouse (lots of learning there) and pbs kids. And when it comes to video games they play vsmile system which is also learning as they play.

I think that it really can be. The shows that I let my child watch are the Wiggles, Teletubbies, and Veggietales. I think that it is really important to remember that even though they are young, they can pick up some really bad habits from the programming that they watch. Also, sitting in front of a television all day kind of tunes them out learning in real life. It impaires the development of thier imaginations.

i will switch on the cartoon network channel to my kid.she loves to watch it and she is learning lot from that.For example 1,2,3 counting,alphabets etc.Even to make her to eat her food i will use this magic TV for her.But my parents are always warning me about the effect of watching TV to eyes.So i will allow her to watch not more than 1 hour in a day.
