Babies and Television: Should They Watch?

I received this article today on babies and young children watching TV, and I wanted to pass it along. We’re steering our son clear of the television until two years of age. This kind of article encourages me to keep going with that plan.

  1. LOL
    Thats great!
    I haven’t survived though . . . we don’t watch television, but we get a good dose of videos.
    Well, I think he will be better for it, that’s for sure. I am amazed at what our kids have picked up even from the “filtered’ videos.

  2. 3 hours a day! Wow, like when. Let’s look at a day in the life of my 9 yr. old:
    Off to school at 7:45
    Out of school at 3:00
    Errands with Mom – home at 4:00
    Homework ’til 5:00
    T.V. from 5:00 – 6:00
    Supper at 6:00
    Baths, etc. at 6:45
    Stories at 7:30
    Hit the hay at 8:00

    Seeing as how this is a pretty typical childhood day, when in the heck do kids watch 3 hours of tv?!!

    We do, at times, let our kids watch T.V. I will be the first to tell you that it is strictly for our convenience. There’s no way I could be convinced it is needed to increase their brain power. 500 studies otherwise could not convince me.
