Re: Is PBS addictive for preschoolers?
I have a car obsessed kid also......could spot makes of car literally a block away when he was 2, floored me, so I get that.
I also have a nature obsessed kid, fav channel is animal planet......you have to be careful with that as it can be a bit gruesome sometimes.
Honestly, we obviously parent completely differently. I just couldn't ever imagine telling my kids they couldn't watch a cartoon at least once in the day(not just dr apt). My olders come home from school, tired after a long day. After snack and homework they usually watch a cartoon, decompress......then after dinner go out and play now the weather is getting better.
Part of me wonders if it's the withholding that is making your son more "obsessed" with pbs/cartoons.
You know like how kids who never have candy or chips ..........we all know people who have never had any then go crazy at parties or at college when they are free to do what they want. Wheras if it's in moderation then it's not such a big deal.
