  • I was very strict about tv watching when he was an infant. I didn't allow it. Now that he's 16 months and sometimes I need him to sit still for 5-10 minutes, I do let him watch. Kid shows, not just anything.

  • We don't own a TV so the only time they have seen TV is at friends homes.

  • YES! and I don't care what people think about it! lol I keep it on Nick Jr, my two year old is more advanced than her 3 year old friends, she speaks spanish courtesy of Dora, Chinese courtesy of Kai Lan, can count to twenty back and forth, and has a very extensive vocabulary. granted, I play with her alot too, and go over numbers and letters, but I love Nick Jr! I just don't let them watch my tv shows, they pick up on way too much

  • My daughter did not watch TV until she was three. Our rule has always been one hour of screen time (TB / computer) on school nights; two hours on non-school nights.
