Me not being able to drive and a SAHM with a Illness...SICKLE CELL ANEMIA. I'm in a lot of pain and I spen the majority of the winter days in the house. I have a 5yr old and my youngest will be 2 on the 1st of Oct. My children watch Tv A LOT But ONLY allowed to watch 1 channel and thats Noggin..Yo Gabba gabba, Dora and so on. My girls are NOT allowed to watch videos unless I or my husband are monitoring, I tried to let my 13 yr old monitor but that just didn't work. So while I'm in the house ALL Day my soon to be 2yr old watches LEARNING Shows and even when her sisters come home. After school my oldest watches tv in her room AFTER HomeWork and the lil ones watch Noggin. I'm very Pleased with Noggin because the shows they show are actualy helping us to reenforce what we're teaching. My lil one sings her ABCs and counts to 10. She sings the songs on the shows and she knows her colors. They aren't allowed to even watch Sponge Bob, If it's not teaching them, then they can't watch it. But In My opinion, It helps as long as it's something they can benifit from.
How do you feel?
