  • I had tv on either kids shows or what I watch from birth. LOL He never really sat and watched until older. He is 14 and still isn't the biggest tv watcher. He loves movies.

  • I will watch my own tv shows when I am nursing the baby in the evening (now 8 mos old). Sometimes she will be in the room playing when my older kids (8&9yrs) watch a show, but they only watch a few hours a week at the most. All of the research shows the less TV the better, the AAP says no tv until 2yrs old. I do not plan on putting any tv on for her until she is at least 2, and even then it will be very limited dvds.

  • no i dont watch any tele in front of my kids no matter what their age.. there is too much crap shown on tele these days.. sometimes we have the news or some sports on when my older one is around (5 years) of course he does love to watch animal planet discovery nat geographic which we allow him to whenever he wants. he watches some movies once in a way.. but they are movies meant for kids
