Standing too close to TV

Why do toddlers and young kids stand so close to the TV? We have a 42" wide screen TV and my kids still stand with their faces right in front of it! Why? I feel like a broken record saying "Back it up." or "Back away from the TV or I will turn it off."

  • I think it's so they can touch it! They are amazed by it and want to get a close look.

  • If you are worried about sitting so close hurting their eyes, don't be. It's an old wives tale.
