I encourage my son to play outside or in the house (with out the tv), wont let him see violent or inappropriate things on tv. I continue to see parents who have grown up shows on while thier LO is in the same room. They say that the kid is not paying attention, but they are!! My good friend is the worst, letting the kid watch R rated movies. She justifies it cause its on tv, so it must mean everything bad is edited out!
I wont even have anything thats not kid friendly on if my child is awake (we DVR everything!). The non-kid directed show my son watches is baseball. or becaue he is very much into trucks and wants to watch the ice-road truckers, which I allow occationally if the sound is off cause those guys talk like truckers!
Am I sheltering too much? I feel so alone in this battle sometimes. But I want my son to have the chance to be child for as long as he can! I don't feel my son is not in reality, if he asks me a question I answer him as honestly as his 4 year old brain can handle.
