TV for baby: does it help or hurt?

Message length 300 characters recommended

I feel that some shows help baby's but you as the parent need to set the limits because to much TV can hurt because as they get older you don't want them to always be glued to it. I would also as they get older watch the TV show before your child if you can to see if you feel the show is safe for them to watch.


I am a firm believer that everything can be harmful if you aren't careful about it.

TVs shouldn't be used as a crutch or as a way to zone out and ignore your children.

I do not let my kids watch the news - Mason and Audrey both understand too much of it and it makes them worry something bad will happen to them/us/people we know. However they are allowed to watch some netflix.
