Re: co-worker wants to buy 1 year old TV and DVD player!?!?

We have 1 tv and DVD player in the house. It will stay this way. TV does not belong in the bedroom, IMHO. I want DS to have a good imagination and be able to entertain himself. Does he watch TV? Yes.

BUT it is her child and her choice. I see no reason to make anyone feel bad for making a decision I would not make when it's not harmful.

Well, I guess I am a bad parent b/c I bought DS a TV with a DVD player for his birthday...and it is in his room!

I think(FWIW) that I know what is best for my little guy. He only watches as much TV as I see fit. And he has a HUGE imagination.

Re: co-worker wants to buy 1 year old TV and DVD player!?!?

I've been tempted to buy my daughter a tv for her room, as there are days she watches a ton of Dora or the like. Just like me I guess she just needs decompressing time, ya know? But honestly I don't think my daughter would sit in a room all by herself anyway. That's my bigger "concern" about buying a child that small her own tv, but then again every child has their own personality and some enjoy alone time from an early age. As long as the mom or some other adult is looking in on and interacting with the little one it's not a big deal in moderation.

My friend bought a tv for her daughter and put it in her playroom. It's basically only used for when lots of kids come over so they can watch their own programming together. She's defenitely not vegging out 24/7.

My boys have a computer in their room hooked up to our movies. They watch a movie every night for bed. It puts them to sleep. They just moved out of our room when we moved here (about 3 months ago, at 4 and 2, baby is still with us ) because we were desperate for some downtime. it works great!

Did she say the TV was going in the kids bedroom? Sounds to me they might not have had a DVD player at all?
