I need help on peacefully telling my grandmother I don't want my daughter to watch TV, and for her to listen. At the moment she just blows me off. My husband and I don't watch TV, and don't want our daughter to watch it either. My grandmother seems to think it's fine to go against our wishes and plans on showing TV to her. Any ideas on how to respectfully tell my grandmother, that TV is off limits to our daughter, without offending her?

Nope.... there is probably no way you won't offend her. Its a generational thing. The only way to completely protect your child from evil TV is to keep her at home with you at all times.

Well you just be blunt about it tell her how you feel and why you don't want her to watch TV. But if she is watching her it is her house and you cant expect her to change her living habits because you don't want your DD watching TV.
