Not sure if this would be better suited in parenting?
DD is a homebody in the winter. She likes to stay in and relax. We don't have a car 4 days a week or more as well. I try to have the TV off and do activities with her or free play and she just freaks out about the TV. She wants it on every waking moment and is really into all the shows.
I keep it to very slow paced shows like Caillou, Blues Clues, Frankiln, Little Bear etc but it's on ALL DAY. If she decides not to nap IDK what to do besides pop a movie in (Curious George or Tinkerbell).
I try unplugging it and that usually works for a little while until she just flips her lid about the TV. I will pull out the paints or another activity and she will do it for 5 mins with me then run over and say "TV,TV!"
We have a lot of toys and books and she does love to read but it only lasts so long...
I'm also in my 3rd trimester with my second child and am worried that the behavior will just get worse when the baby comes b/c I will have so much to do. I am *hoping* we will have the car a bit more when DH graduates but IDK for sure.
How would you handle this?
