TV and kids
2 Feb 07
I'm the meanest mom in the world when it comes to TV.. lol.. we haven't even had cable in over 3 years now. I'd much rather pay for the internet. It is so much more educational. When we did have cable there was just so much that my kids weren't able to watch and anything worth watching can usually be accessed online anyways so it's not like they are really missing out on anything

Too much of anything is bad. Kids should be limited to 2-3 shows a day. Parents should sit with their children during their tv time to successfully supervise them. They shouldn't let the tv babysit their children! For schoolers, tv watching should be used to reinforce their studying habits. The kids can be allowed to watch their favorite shows only when they were done with their homeworks. :)

My son is spending lot of time in front of the tv. He is 3 years old, but can't do anything about it because he has no playmate. And he learns some of his words from the tv. So it's better than not learning how to speak. He is only left with the his nanny on weekdays. And she's too lazy to teach him things.
