Does/Did Your Toddler Do This?

My son is almost 21 months and he always stands so close to the TV. I dont know if its because he has trouble seeing it from the couch or what. I have HORRIBLE eyes & his dad has perfect vision. So my question is, if your toddler has or had glasses how did you know they needed them?

Neither of mind need glasses. But both stood close to the tv. I think that is just a kid thing.

Liam is almost 19 months and he has taken to doing that lately... I am not worried... but now I wonder if I should be, lol.

I really think all kids do that. Mine does, all my little siblings used to do it. Try setting up a chair or some special space for her to sit in to watch TV. It works for my dd once in a while.

My son is three and I still have to fight with him about that!  But I can tell through other areas of life that he can see just fine, so I wouldn't worry too much.

Honestly I think it's a kid thing.

My son LOVES standing right in front of the tv. And he likes to touch the screen :)

mine used to, but then we got a bigger tv and it would've fit in our entertainment center, so we had to put it on the top. these days he likes to sit on the couch and watch tv (he's just about 16 months)
