Re: Do your babysitters allow TV?

My sitter will put the tv on if she's making dinner or cleaning up after dinner, and also during bathtime. Other than that, I haven't seen her use the tv much. (My boys go to her house) She's good about getting them outside to play alot and stuff like that.

I don't mind that she occupies them with the tv during that time. During school, she's got my younger 2, her youngest (who's 3) and sometime her grandson(5) and granddaughter (almost 2) That's alot of kids to occupy and keep safe while cooking.

But, if you don't want her watching tv, then you need to tell her so, but chose your words and tone carefully so she doesn't get defenseful. Like a pp said, she might have a vaild reason for turning it on, and just sat down for a few minutes.
