I was devastated to hear from my son (though he was very excited to tell me) that he watched "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and Winnie the Pooh at school yesterday and today! He is in a local pre-school. We have previously discussed our objections about watching movies - perhaps allow an occasional documentary...(if we must). I am struggling to understand WHY? It is a short school day 8-12h30 and beautiful weather. I am very disappointed with the system and plan to take it further ... when my anger subsides I will probably feel more bad about making a scene.
Still this is very important to me. We limit and screen our 5 yr old sons dvd watching on weekends. So we are not purist. But I feel school is for play and learning through play ideally. It makes me so sad to think my son was probably called from playing outside or with cars to sit in front of a screen with 15 other kids to suck into tv.
Any thoughts to help me with this one?
