Last week new guidelines recommended that children under the age of 2 should not watch television for more than an hour a day http://news.ninemsn.com.au/health/874420/no-tv-for-children-under-two-guidelines. As always most societal problems can be traced back to us hopeless mothers!
I have to admit publicly, that, yes, my kids do and have, watched TV. Quite a lot sometimes. Do I have to tell them to turn it off? Absolutely! Do I have to monitor what they watch? Of course! Can they read? Yes.
I thought I'd share this response to this whole TV issue from Thursday's Sydney Morning Herald with you.
