TV - How Much & How Often, & At What Age? **EDIT**
I say a ~20 minutes a day of educational TV is fine. We ditched cable when I decided to stay home, so we have public broadcasting available - Sesame Street (she likes Elmo - has a stuffed Elmo doll) would be a favorite.
He says that according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, there should be NO TV or video of any kind before age 2, and he agrees with that.
What are your thoughts on this?
1) should children under 2 be allowed to view TV?
2) regardless of age, how often?
3) and for how long @ each viewing session?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
For those that want information about studies, below are some links. I watched a study on YouTube about TV contributing to A.D.D. in toddlers, but now I cannot find it. I'll continue to look for it though.
