I swear I think my kids are lol. The first thing mydaughter says to me when she wakes up from bed in the morning is that she wants to watch DORA. I mean part of me thinks she is watching too much tv but the other part thinks its ok because she is starting to learn some spanish words . Like she already knows how to say backpack in spanish and she says up and down and open and close all in spanish. Like right now they are watching DORA pirate adventure . My newly turned 1 yr old also loves dora . As soon as he sees someone put anything in the vcr he immeadtiley goes to sit in front of the tv and then doesn't move until its over.I feel gulity because I think that they shouldn't be want ing to watch that much tv.

 Have anyone of you ran into this problem. I mean my kids do other things also besides watching tv all the time . Is there a show that anyone elses kids want to watch all the time ?

They do what is needing to be done so I let them have their time.If it gets to be way to much then they are told to play and no more tv.

Oh My Goodness....I have the same problem, with my daughter who is 2 going on 3...She absolutely loves Dora, Diego and The Backyardigans...along with her Disney Movies....In the morning, my daughter, Isabelle, tells me that some thing..."I want to watch Dora or Diego.." I personal don't mind her watching tv, she only watches in morning anyway...then after lunch she takes a nap and plays for the rest of the day...if you think about it, while they are watching Dora, Diego...you can get things done around the house, if you are a stay at home mommy like I am...plus learning spanish is not that bad, I tell you that we were surprised when she started to talk spanish...I would rather her watch Dora and Diego and the Backyardigan and disney movies...she actually learns from dora and diego...

And I even learned some spanish that I didn't know from watching dora and learned about animals that I didn't know about either...

Don't worry, they are not watching too much tv...they are learning...and what my husband and I decided to get Belle, that is what we call her...we got the leapfrog first computer with some of the game that she can play and learn as well...and she just loves that...

What I say is this...as long as it is not Spongebob,( I absolutely HATE THAT SHOW AND REFUSE TO LET MY KIDS WATCH THAT CRAP)...and they learn from it...I don't see a problem with it.
