I'm not asking this to be judgmental or anything like this I'm just curious as to what other toddlers do. My 15 mo daughter shows no interest in TV whatsover even if I put something like the tweenies she will ignore it. So here are the questions: 1. When did your toddler first start watching TV? 2. How uch do they watch a day and how old are they? 3. What are your reasons for your toddler watching/not watching TV Just to clarify I am not looking for advice on how to get my toddler to watch tv I don't care that shes not interested. I think I found an answer.
3. 5-year old daughter. She watches no more than 10 hours a week and that includes what she gets on her computer in the form of pc games. She very rarely watches actual tv beyond watching the Simpson's at 6 with her dad. Sort of routine cause i'm mostly cooking then and it keeps her out of my hair. Only dvd's and videos for the rest. Her favourites now are Little Mermaid, Big Cook Little Cook, Dangermouse, Thumbelina and Clifford. We're trying to get her into Dora to keep Barbie at bay for a few more years. She started watching at a very early age. She worked her way through the baby Einstein series, then she got hooked on Never-Ending Story (thanks to nannie) and got a thing with giants so I bought her the Iron Giant to show not all giants are bad. She watches tv cause she does like it to any degree and again, it keeps her occupied so I l get to do any housework at the same time. Sometimes I really want a nap and will get on the sofa with her. She'll watch her film, i'll nod off and sometimes we end up both asleep. She learns from it. I restrict her viewing because it is passive learning. She knows we don't do televisions in the bedroom though 🙂
Maxine watches TV while one can take a look at her feet and soles.
