Do you follow the recommended guidelines for tv and video games regarding kids?

I don't. and my oldest who is 9 is highly gifted in a freaky smart way.

My 5 yr old and 6 yr old are doing great in their dual language program and reading above level. The 5 year old is doing multiplications and grasps the concept of fractions.

So you follow the tv/ video game guide lines? Although there have been days mine haven't played or watch they spend overall more than the recommended time.

I also expose them to other stuff through fun activities*

I am not picky about how much TV or video games they play but if I notice they have been in front of an electronic for an extended amount of time I will suggest that we do something else.

My dd is 22 months today. She hasn't ever been interested in tv. She's very smart though. Her doctor said she was advanced as a 2 1/2 year old at 18 mos.

No. I think it is more important what you watch than how much. I don't limit. I simply encourage variety. How many adults follow the guidelines?

I know right! I know tons if adults who will watch an entire series on Netflix in a week!
