Is it "normal" among "mainstream" parents to sit infants in front of the tv? I have veard that they see it as educational and appropriately stimulating. I am not understanding this.
|i guess my real beef with educational vidoes for infants is just tryiin to compensate for the intense publicity all that stuff if getting, as if this is the "new way" to parent and if your not on it your diservicing your child and hes gonna be behind all the "smart" babies|

TV is mental junk food, IMO. A little isn't going to hurt anyone, total deprivation sometimes just makes the kids want to binge when they're out from under your thumb, but you certainly shouldn't feel like you're HURTING your kids if you don't give them any, especially when they're young enough not to know what they're missing!
