  • Some studies say yes, some studies say no. Some studies say it depends on the type of tv you have. I encourage my children to sit back. Not only for their eyes, but their ears/hearing as well.

  • I don't think so. My MIL always made such a big deal about how my kids when they were little were too close to the TV. I never moved them. They liked to touch it when they were little.
