We played games, watched cartoons and lots of kid/ Disney movies, went to gymnastics and cheer, read and made up stories of Shirley the squirrel for my youngest. To this day ( they are 22& 19) we still play games, go to football games, rodeo, and movies together. We like to all go as family to new Marvel, Jurassic Pirate or Wizzard movies together. Ticket to Ride and Harry Potter game ... More
When he gets frustrated. Any options on how to stop it? I don't want her to not watch the show because she likes it.
What are your thoughts on tablets for babies? My daughter is about to be 8 months and she loves BabyFirst TV. My thought is that it will help her with her car ride because she hates to be in her car seat. If you have purchased one, did you go with an iPad or something more like Amazon Fire?
We caved in. At 4 months we introduced TV to our baby boy. Are we terrible parents? Maybe. Oh well. It’s been done. He started off with Paw Patrol (he loves the catchy tune) and now we’ve moved to Pocoyo Which he lovessssssss bc of the contrast against the white background. That was until we discovered HEY DUGGEE!! We are both obsessed! They’re short episodes but it’s packed full of color... More
When our toddler watches yt kids, it seems like every other video is the finger family or a remix. That stuff creeps me out. I know how to block videos and channels, but the finger family keeps on popping up like wack a mole. Suggestions?
My baby is 5 months old and is very attentive and alert to all of his surroundings. My question is, is it okay to still watch shows that may show nudity, have foul language, etc? Or is it something I shouldn’t worry about until he’s a little older? I don’t want him absorbing anything harmful to his development.
Piggybacking off of this sweet Mr. Rogers post about talking to kids, what is your favorite memory of Mr. Rogers as a kid? What lessons have you taken into your life as a parent? Mine is just patience. Mr. Rogers was also so patient, so happy to talk to kids. I try to remember that when I get frustrated with my own LOs. https://winnie.com/post/on-freddish-mr-rogers-thoughtful-3958a848
'Won't You Be My Neighbor' opened in select cities over the weekend and is being released in more cities throughout the month. Has anyone seen it yet? Was it amazing?? http://focusfeatures.com/wont-you-be-my-neighbor/theaters
“Once, Rogers provided new lyrics for the “Tomorrow” song that ended each show to ensure that children watching on Friday wouldn’t expect a show on Saturday, when the show didn’t air.”
I’m on a road trip and looking for some kid friendly podcasts, preferably for kids ages 6-10. So far we’ve tried Tumble, which is a cute science one, and The Unexplainable Disappearance of Mars Patel (which my kids liked but I think is more geared towards like ages 10-12). Looking for anything science related, comedy, storytelling, or mystery.
We just got an Amazon Fire for Kids for my baby to entertain him on a long flight. We are bringing books and I already downloaded a bunch of spongebob episodes (he loves them!). Looking for other suggestions to keep him entertained as he does not like to sit still!
At what age did you take your kiddo to their first “real” movie and they were able to handle it? I don’t mean a Wednesday kids matinee of the re-release of Lady and the Tramp, but a Friday night popcorn and fruit punch viewing of Homeward Bound (yes, I’m aware I’m dating myself 😁)?
