I don't have cable, we haven't had it for alomst a year now. I don't miss it much. But my kids still have their movies, which they watch toooooooo much. A movie every night at least. My kids are watching over 10 hours of TV a week. I am so mad at myself! I don't know what else to do. I am sure that my son is addicted and he is only 2 and still not talking, which I am certain is due to the TV. I feel terrible. I caused this. When I needed to get something done I put him in front of the TV, now it has just gone overboard. I work full time and when I get home from work I have to cook and get some things done around the house. He still likes to play when we first get home but after about an hour or so, he heads upstairs and turns on the TV. He can do it himself. Now that is bad, he can even put a movie in and press play himself. How do I wean him off of this? It has to stop, plus I have no idea how much TV he watches during the day because he is with my mother-in-law while I work. : I need to talk to her about it as well. What should I do? What can I do to entertain him?
