Is it okay to let my 8 month old pull up and put his hand on the TV?

My fiance says it's okay and my mom says it's not, even if I'm watching him.

  • It wont hurt anything but just be sure that its not a tv that could fall on him! Kids die every year from tv crushing accidents.

  • As long as you're watching him, he'll be fine. It's not going to transmit evil waves to his brain or anything, lol. Like the above posters said, he could pull it on his head if you're not careful.

  • I think it would hurt the TV more than the child. If you have one of those soft screen one I forsee a lot of damage.

    Nothing wrong with exploring as long as you are watching.

    Your baby probably is trying to figure out why there are people in the box.
