Loves reading to my son

my son is 20 months old and will not sit down and watch tv or a movie but loves to read and play sometimes i think im wrong for not pushing him to sit down to watch and relax but he's been like that since day 1 we will either sing our song together or read before bed is it wrong to keep doing this and not pushing for the movie/tv issue?

  • I think it'sgreat that your son loves being read to, and enjoys music. He is only 20 months old, so his busy behavior is not such a big deal, but soon, you are going to have to be teaching him to listen to music or to watch a movie, not necessarily TV. If he never learned to watch TV, it wouldn't hurt him. Does he sleep all night, laying quietly or does he move in his sleep a lot too? If the routine is one that he likes and it works, then do what's right for him. But remember, SOON you will need to work on sitting for short periods of time for pre-school and school. Good luck to you.
