Just wondering ehat your thoughts are on babies and tv??? I am very reluctant to let my 6 month old son watch any tv. We received several "Baby Einstein' vidoes but I am still not convinced that these are good for them...Answer Question
We don't allow our daughter to watch any tv. The shows made for kids are only there to sell them products. Read this article. I think many people use the tv as a babysitter and it's so sad. My good friend is a Kindergarten teacher and she sends a survey home with her kids during the first week of school each year and one of the questions is: How much television does your child watch per day? Before she even gets the surveys back, she can already tell which kids watch tv and which don't, because their behavior/vocabularies are so strikingly different.

It depends on what you let them watch. My older son is in school and I have a three year old and a 16 month at home. We watch Disney and PBS. My kids love it and my baby will shake and dance with the music. My son sings with them. These programs are not there to just entertain but teach as well. They need some variety too besides playing with their toys and mommy.
