TV makes my toddler crazy!?

We don't do tv that often with my three year old. I swear EVERYTIME we watch a show or movie it turns her into a little brat. Like she gets super moody after we turn it on and will mope around or throw a total fit. Am I crazy or does any other kid do this?

My kids get upset when I change the channel more of my 3 year old. We have three tvs on in a play room. Living room. And my bedroom.

My daughter is the same. After watching just a 15 minute show, she is in an awful mood the rest of the day.

Yep, when the short, not-often TV times is over, she whines and fusses.  I'd like to tell that means she'll have to miss the next TV time, but I don't think she's old enough yet to understand that.

Yup, I have told them "this is why we don't watch tv much, it turns you into a little stinker" but I don't think they get it. How old is your little one?
