Hi! I’m looking for some appropriate movies (or tv shows) for my 2 year old son. We’ve done Daniel Tiger, Thomas the Train, Bubble Guppies, Sesame Street and the movie Cars. Anything else? Thanks! And yes, I am aware of monitoring screen time - we go and do a variety of activities - but when they’re sick or it rains for days on end a movie or two doesn’t hurt. They will still go to college 😉
They’re in the same room, well within range to see the screen. It isn’t a cartoon or anything entertaining for them either. It’s the news, documentary or sports.
It doesn’t seem to matter what we are watching, he will sit there enraptured by it for 20-30 minutes. At first it was cute, but now I’m a little concerned... should I be?
We struggle with our 5 year old who is currently interested in scary movies. He has split homes and the knowledge of it has come from the opposite home. Often, different characters come out at different times and has taken his father and I by shock. He has mentioned Pennywise, Michael Myers, Jason, Freddy, etc. At our house, we do not allow scary videos, movies or figures. It all started about ... More
My 18 month old recent discovered blippi and is obsessed. Before this he never gave the tv a chance now all he wants to do is watch blippi. He’s sick of his toys (Christmas is coming so I’m buying toys for then) and where I live it’s now full blown winter now and hard to get out to the park or for a walk. I’ve been trying to keep him entertain and do creative things with him be he only lasts so... More

I keep telling him that's not realistic but I don't want to crush his dreams. What should I do or say?
All of the shows are in French with minimal English-speaking early learners can't follow along... Any suggestions??
I was trying to figure out why my 3 year old kept calling her sister Margaret (her name is Aubrey) that thinking she might have a friend named Margaret. Then I realized it's the name of Daniel Tiger's sister. We may need to lay off the Daniel Tiger for a bit... 😂😂
My wife and I love watching BBC nature documentaries (Life, Planet Earth, etc.) with our 1 year old son. Everything about the experience is beautiful and beneficial, in our opinion, with one exception - the graphic natural deaths. While death is a natural part of life and is perfectly acceptable as part of these documentaries, we are hesitant to expose our son to such graphic death at such an e... More
I am curious how much time you all allow your children to have screen time. I have a 21 month old little boy who was able to watch a bit too much TV (Mickey Mouse to be exact) for two weeks and now I’m trying to get back to limiting time, which makes him upset. I had a hysterectomy so I was limited on what all I could do to keep him busy and happy while I was recovering. I am being a stickler, ... More

I’m intimidated and amazed by parents that don’t allow their children any screen time in this day and age. My family lives thousands of miles away, and I videochat them daily. It helps us stay connected with them and eases the loneliness of being a SAHM in an unfamiliar place. Additionally, I didn’t graduate high school too long ago, and we used technology by way of laptops, projectors, smart... More
