Okay so this is another touchy subject i think, and not every mum will agree that letting your children watch TV is a good idea. I will admit the TV does have it’s pros and cons but I want to share my story about why I let my child watch TV.
TV helps them learn
Believe it or not, thanks to Charlie and the numbers my 2 year old knows all of his numbers and the letters of the alphabet! I’m not saying I didn’t play a part in teaching my little one these all of this too, or that I don’t contribute to my children’s learning. But the TV has definitely helped!
It increases their imagination!
My little boy runs around the house roaring like a dinosaur or flying around yelling “zooooom i will catch you!” I believe that the TV has helped my little ones to understand fun and games at an earlier age and their imagination makes them so much more fun at a young age!
It gives me a chance to get things done!
Yes you may think im a lazy mum but sometimes things need to be done around the house when my toddlers are tripping under my feet!
I’m tired of feeling ashamed to admit i allow my children to watch TV when there are also so many benefits to it 🙂 I truly think everything in moderation is key!
