My daughter just turned 2 and we allow her to watch TV around 1h per day, half an hour in the morning and half an hour at night. The main reason is for her to be familiar with english because it's not our native language and we speak french at home.
I never though I would allow my child to watch TV that young, but to be honest sometimes it also the possibility for me to have a little bit of a break in the morning and be able to take my breakfast, otherwise she is constantly running around, ask me to be with her, to do this or that, and if I don't she screams...She is a very energetic and very demanding child :-)
Don't get me wrong I like to spend time with her during the day, but I also like to take my breakfast a little bit peacefully.
I was wondering if you allow your toddler to watch TV, and if yes how long?
I know it will be better for her not to watch it at all, but for now we decided to allow her to watch it.
If you want to share your experience about TV and Toddler I'll be glad to read it :-)
