How can you tell if your toddler is watchign too much tv? Ive never thought it was a problem but i recently read they should only get about an hour aday and then i read a bunch of moms say their kids watched 1-3 hours a day but none of them were stay at home moms.. in my house the tv is always on pretty much all day but i monitor what my son watches.. its always nick junior shows with good morals and learning.. We watch omi zoomi which i sit with him and we sing the number songs and stuff and blues clues he loves and points out all sorts of thing and sing along.. i feel like he doesnt enjoy sitting with me when i try to teach him and yet when i sit with him and we sing along to a show he gets more out of it.. he doesnt watch it all day tho.. its on in the background while we play games or color but he spends a good amount of time with it on.. is that a problem?? id like other moms take on this subject. My son is a ball of energy and its nice to get at least one break a day to run around and get a few things around the house done or trhow dinner on the stove.. i also have a six month old [she doesnt watch tv yet ] & my kids play nicely together and he knows to share.. only thing my son is behind in is speech and i really wouldnt even consider him to be THAT far behind in speechAnswer Question

One of the issues studies are showing from too much television is speech delays. The shows he is watching is limited in vocabulary, unlike a conversation you would have or what you'd find reading a book together. He can't ask the tv questions to learn more, either.
Here's a link with some information if you are interested.
