I know many people on here are against tv. That is their opinion. Others are not. But even those who aren't against tv always make little disclaimers in their posts like, "But I don't let him watch that much," or "I know tv is wrong but I let them watch a bit when I am really needing a break." People go on about how they know their child is too young or that tv is bad and seem to feel the need to justify themselves to others on here. That drives me insane. If your kids watch tv - so what?! Who cares? I let my kids watch tv and I have no guilt about it. My 19 month old is watching Dora as we speak. I could write a reason but I see no need to justify myself. Why are people so worried about what other people think? If you want your kids to watch tv then let them. I guarantee you will enjoy parenting a lot more if you stop letting other people make you feel guilty about really stupid things.
