  • I dont feel that watching cartoons at the table is bad. We listen to a morning show on the radio as we eat breakfast (granted that is for my enjoyment not hers). We get up color a little bit, go to the playroom put on cartoons, I make breakfast while she watches tv, put her in the highchair & eat, change her diaper, let her run around w/o any clothing on watching tv or playing while I check the weather, get dressed, get her clothing ready for the day, etc.

  • As soon as my daughter wakes up she asks to watch tv. So I let her while I try and wake up and get my coffee. Then I turn the tv off and we have breakfast. Then we play with toys and then we go outside to play. My daughter is 2 also.

  • There is no reason to have a television in the kitchen. Mealtime is family time.

  • My little guy and I watch cartoons each morning while he has his milk sippy and breakfast. Usually its Super Why and Sesame Street on PBS.  I use the time for learning time also.
