So I write this as my two little ones are settled downstairs watching Blues Clues and playing – well when my oldest isn’t yanking her toys from her little sister’s hands! Let’s be honest, if they weren’t watching TV, I wouldn’t be up here in the loft getting some work done.
This from a mom who swore that her kids wouldn’t watch any TV or if they were it would be limited. Well, good news is it is limited (both in amount of and kind of)….bad news, they watch TV.
That being said, I do only allow them to watch educational shows. PBS is our best friend. In fact, should my daughter by chance get caught watching a show her father or grandparents put on…she gets very upset when a commercial comes on because she instantly thinks she show is over…that’s how used to PBS she is.
So does letting the kids watch educational TV qualify as being a bad parent? I decided to add this poll to my page. Please take a moment to vote.
In the meantime, here are some great shows for kids in the two to four year old categories…oddly they all seems to air on PBS except for a Disney favorite.
• Blues Clues
• Word World
• The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!
• Super Why?
• Mickey Mouse Club House
• Jack’s Big Music Show
• Dinosaur Train
What are your kid’s watching. Do share.
