  1. Toddler & Child
    Most parents spend the majority of their time trying to get their kids off of screens. Now there is (gasp!) finally a reason to turn on the tube Hold on, though.. hear us out! When my son was around five years old, he began telling me about a vacuum that he thought we should buy. On a daily...
  2. Family Life
    I've been hooked on This Is Us from the very first episode, ever since the (spoilers!) plot twist in the first episode where we learned that the birth of Jack and Rebecca Pearson's triplets had taken place in 1979 and not in present day. The show follows the Pearson triplets - Kevin, Kate, and...
  3. Queer Parenting
    Hi everyone! I'm a Casting Producer with Magilla Entertainment, and we're currently casting an empowering, relatable, and most of all honest, docu-series for TLC all about how life changes in the first year of parenthood! We're looking for parents-to-be who are due this summer to early fall...

    Documentary looking to showcase families/individuals moving off the grid If you are in the process of moving off the grid or have recently made the move (Within last two years), then we want to hear from you! We'd love to showcase your move and go inside what sort of fun experiences you have...

    <p>Has anyone else watched this series on PBS? I just saw the last episode of the last season (which I believe is actually the series finale) and I thought it was really well done. </p> <p> </p> <p>Can't wait to get the book from the library to see how it compares - I've been on the wait list...

    <p>So if you know where to look on the interwebs, you should be able to watch the first episode of season 4 around September 22nd. Who's excited!?</p>
  8. Television
    Some cartoons for kids are really annoying. I have a pre-teen so I would primarily say absolutely anything on Cartoon Network. For younger kids, I don't really like that Sophia The First show, and I'm not sure what it is about it that bugs me. Maybe the whole princess thing, I don't...
  9. Family Life
      As a child born in the mid 70's, my generation has witnessed a pretty radical lifestyle shift due to technological advances. It is a transformation that will no doubt continue to insert itself further and further into our lives with the development of each new "must have" gadget. It begs the...
  10. Life with a Toddler
    <p>I know it isn't good for them, but I admit that when I was getting dinner together, I'd put a toddler in front of a Baby Einstein video - not because I thought it would make them smarter but because it would keep them quiet while I was working, and I wasn't prepared to baby wear around...

    <p>My kids are outgrowing PBS Kids and I'm looking for entertaining shows that I feel comfortable with them watching. Any recommendations for shows they'll like that are free from romantic flirtation, gender stereotypes, unattainable beauty standards, glorification of rudeness, etc?</p>
  12. Life with a Toddler
    My babe is 4 months, but I'm thinking ahead. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br> I have noticed a lot of threads in Toddlers about 2-3 year-olds and phases involving constant meltdowns (duh), many mentioning battles over...

    <p>So a few weeks ago, my kids and I started watching Chopped.  We were in a hotel and bored, so we turned on the Food Network.  Anyone else watch this show?  I find myself actually annoyed now at some of the decisions the judges make.</p> <p> <img alt="lol.gif"...
  14. Parenting
    <p>We have started limiting screen time more and more. I can't quite figure out why, but when DD1 (6) gets a lot of screen time (either TV or iPad) her behavior takes a huge dive. She get's cranky and irritable, doesn't listen as well, and also refuses to do anything BUT screen time. In our own...
  15. Life with a Toddler
    We were completely media-free with our son (except radio/music) until he was 2.5, after which we bought a bunch of 11 minute "Franklin" (the animated turtle) episodes. We watch a couple a day with him. DH got a Netflix subscription last night, but even "G" rated stuff had violence.<br><br> We...

    <p>What are your favorite tv shows ever?  I just finished Sons of Anarchy and am looking for a new obsession.  It would be preferable if the shows were available on netflix and hulu, but I'm willing to rent them if they are good enough.</p> <p> </p> <p>Some of my favorites:</p> <p>(in no...
  17. Parenting
    <p>Has anyone noticed a correlation between screen time and tantrums?  (violent outburst is probably a little extreme...  but I'm talking about my 7 year old, so its not just a tantrum, yanno?).  I thought it was just holidays -- lack of sleep, excitement, crap food, etc...  but easter was...

    <p><span style="font-family:arial;">Celebrity event planner David Tutera isn’t just making over weddings on this season of We tv’s “My Fair Wedding.” He’s looking for ladies with big personalities throwing big events that are too important to leave to the amateurs. Let David take the reigns of...

    <p>Anyone else Downton Abbey fans? I <em>love </em>historical fiction and British history so this show is right up my alley. I kind of cheated and watched the whole season already when it first leaked on the internet, so I'll try not to give any spoilers before the episodes have aired on...
