What do you think of moms who don't let their young kids watch any television or movies?

Just curious. I feel like I'm in the real minority here.

  • I couldn't survive without a little bit of that down time. My dd gets two hours of total TV time each day. It is ALWAYS PBS so that she is exposed to learning shows ONLY. She also gets one family movie night a week.
    As for those who don't allow any TV... Sometimes I wish I was strong enough to enforce that with my dd. I just haven't been able to.

  • I think it's neat that they have other kids to entertain their kids with, god knows I can't do that, I wish my kids wouldn't watch that much tv though.

  • no tv at all ever.. I would say she is brave because she has to entertain them more plus the kids would have to know how to entertain themselves, how do keep from tv when at a friends or school ( my kids get to see a movie at school sometimes).. & maybe overprotective.. I allow my kids tv a little before school, friday is family movie night, and sundays ( limited ) during the winter they get a little more than the summer, when i tell them go play outside.

  • Thats great! Glad it works for them! Children under the age of 2 shouldnt watch tv at all! I think that some parents allow their children to watch too much tv! Im somewhere in between!

  • I don't think anything of it really. Every family,every mom,every household is different.What another person does in reguards to that doesn't effect me or my children, why should I care?
