I used to be really hooked on the concept of "tv-free." There are specific aesthetic and intellectual things that bug me about tv, which is why I don't watch it, but I got into thinking that "tv-free" was a superior way to be for a while after ds was born.
More recently, that judgment let go of me when I analyzed it and decided that it wasn't really true for everyone and that I didn't like feeling such a negative feeling about something that so many people I care about do. My thinking is really shifting to being okay with tv, in other people's lives.
We still don't have one and don't want one. However, ds is really into YouTubes suddenly (we started looking things up on the computer when he asked about stuff, and that led to YouTubes, and he really liked them), and is requesting them. I feel like he is spending kind of a lot of time watching them (although he is still spending lots of time doing completely different stuff, too, and he will ask me to turn them off when he's done), and I'm not resisting it, but it bugs me. (He is 26 months)
I am trying to figure out why? Really, I want to know what bugs YOU about it, meaning, why wouldn't (or would) YOU be comfortable with this? I am hoping that other people's thoughts will help me understand my own.
