Introducing your toddlers to screens is a considerable risk, and it is always scary for parents to decide whether it’s time or not. Considering how appealing TV shows can be, for your little one, you are still afraid that it might be a slow poison for your toddler’s positive and sportive energy. Most pediatrics recommend that you should wait until your toddler is two years old, before putting them in front of TV screens.
You get it that TV screens can indeed attract our young ones’ attention. Colors, motion graphics, playful and talking characters can spark amusement. What scares parents the most is the idea of watching your kids doing the same things that they watch on TV. Of course, not every cat is a tom trying to have fun with a rat named jerry. And not every animal can talk. But we all know how it’s going to be for the next few years and how hard it will be to resist that burst of laughter from watching our kid talking to a bird that just came for food. But this is only the fun part. What if this gets worse? What if our baby tries to reenact something violent? Yes, we know this worries you the most. You want your baby to be well-behaved. Toddlers are too young to understand what is real and what is not. They cannot differentiate between right and wrong, or fun and violence.
You, as a parent with a busy schedule, might not want to hear funny whining songs all day long, but this is the best choice to make for a good start. TV shows can be liabilities, but choosing a good one for your toddler will result in risk-free watching time for you and your tot.
At a young age, like every other parent, you also want your kid to learn useful things and adopt an acceptable behavior. TV shows for toddlers are not only for fun but for educational purposes too. Pre-school education can be helpful for you and your little ones. TV shows help your infants to experience emotions in a secure way rather than from real-world experiences that can be a bit harsh.
