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?

sure if you want it broken, crayon markings, scribbles, scratches....go right ahead! unless you mount it on the wall out of their reach, it is not a good idea. plus they will want to keep it on all night...if they grow up with it in their room, they might not want to engage in the real world either.

As long as you limit how much they watch it I see no problem with it.

Someone may have already said this, but the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends NO screen time under the age of 2, so no.
