how much tv does your 2yr old watch?

My baby girl hardly watches any. Today I let her watch one show but she got up to play and eat! LOL I am ok with it but my other two watched it more I had to physically turn the tv off or they would just watch it all day if I let them!

  • He watches a movie or 2 on saturdays but he has the attention span of a typical 2 year so he will watch a few minutes and then run around like a maniac and then do it all over again lol.

  • He is 2-1/2 and watches maybe 30 -45 minutes a day before we leave for work/daycare - otherwise none, he just has zero interest in it..

  • Mine will actually sit and watch Super Why and Dinosaur Train. That is roughly and hours worth a day. She is only allowed PBS and it is usually on in the background or I put on one of her Leap frog DVD's.

  • More than I'd prefer sometimes. Some days he doesn't watch any at all and other days he watches probably about 2 or so hours worth. I know that's a lot.

    My hubby and I have an unconventional schedule and sometimes we each allow more than normal in one day, so he gets a lot without us realizing it.
