I am so sick of reading how TV rots a child's brain. First i will agree there is a limit to TV. It is not a 3 hour long babysitter.
My 2 younger children went to kindergarten when they were 3 years old ( they turn 4 in Nov.) What disgusted me on the first day of school was the fact my little tiny babies were the only one's in their class who could write their name. What were the parents doing for the last 5 years?
My kids all watched TV. It's a great tool. Put on the right shows and you have a learning tool. (of course you should be involved) They can teach colors, numbers, letters. how to be a friend, manners, ect...
How about all of us single moms who need a few minutes to brush our hair and put on deodorant?? Turning on the TV makes us automatic bad parents... That is BS! Go ahead and tell me to put up a gate and go do it... maybe i have gymnasts, cause at 3 they could flip right over.
Seriously people stop blaming TV. It doesn't make children stupid, lazy parents make for stupid kids.
