No TV before 2?
Brielle's pediatrician said no TV before the age of 2 and I don't want to set her in front of it 24/7 but why can't I even show her educational shows? She said absolutely no screen time what-so-ever, whether its TV, Phone, or Computer. Just curious as to why it's so bad.
With that said, I'm not sure I buy it. I don't sit Avery in front of the TV either but she does watch a few cartoons. She's only a year but she's already waving to the character's, dancing along, and imitating them. To me that seems like learning and I'm okay with it.
I think they just go overboard in hopes that parents will be more mindful of television, which I think is still a good thing.
