TV in the room of a 17 month old??

Posted by   + Show Post


What's your opinion on buying a TV to put in the bedroom of a 17 month child?  Too early? or  Is this a good idea?

No one has a tv in their room at my house, adult or child. 17 month olds dont even need to watch tv.

Eh.. At one point I had a tv in every bedroom and livings room. My daughter was maybe 1 or 2.. It's not a big deal. We hardly ever turned them on,  they were more for decoration than anything.. I don't think it's a big deal

I am not a fan of Tv in the bedrooms. My kids didn't have them til they left for college.

Not something I would do.

I won't allow tvs in the rooms of my children period, theres no reason why they can't watch it out among people, not alone in their rooms. Its unhealthy to watch tv when going to sleep and having it there will only encourage that. I don't understand why a 17 month old would be watching tv on a regular basis period.

Quoting kbutton24: Definitely not. I don't believe in children having their own tv anyway. Nevermind that young.

No 17 mo. old child of mine would even watch tv.

My son just turned 4 today. We got him a TV/DVD combo along with some movies. We won't give him cable or anything like that. We currently live in a tiny house and I'm tired of toys all over my tiny living room. I figured that this will allow us to keep they mess in the boys room and we can still have movie nights :)

Quoting xredstarsx: My dd is 4 and is getting a tv for her room for Christmas. However she won't have a cable, just a DVD player.

We don't put TVs in our kids rooms.
