My 10 month old crawls to the TV and stands up right in front of it. I always tell him "NO" and move him back but this is the constant struggle everyday. Moving him away from the damn TV.
Then he likes to sit really close to watch it.
What can I do to have him stop??? Obviously NO isnt working....

Turn off the TV!
What you are teaching your child is to tune out the word no. You are going to have a child that you can't control because the words no and stop just don't work. If you rarely use no, less than once a day, then then they will have power for important things like running into the street or putting a hand near a stove.
If you aren't going to turn off the TV then move it or put stuff in front of it so he can't stand in front of it. Learn to change the situation rather than say "NO" or punish. You are going to need to learn many parenting skills now that he is a toddler. Just saying "NO" isn't an effective parenting style.
