My son is two years old now and he is in the stage of entertaining himself by just watching shows on TV. Good thing that there are channels dedicated on showing things just for kids. With our DirecTV cable connection we have, I think, 5-7 channels that are appropriate for my son's age just for kids, at any age. Everyday, our TV is always tuned in to Nick Jr.1&2 and Noggin channels because those are the channels that has shows appropriate for my son's age. I would change channels once in a while if I really wanted to see a certain show but we are making sure that it is something that my son can watch. My husband likes watching wrestling but we can't watch it with my son, so he will watch it alone on our other TV or when our son is sleeping, that way he can't see all those violent stunts shown on wrestling.
My son's favorite shows are Wonder Pets, Dora the Explorer, Yo Gabba Gabba, Ni-Hao Kailan, and The Backyardigans. Those are shows that would help our kids learn manners, responsibilities, socialization, and other languages such as basic Spanish and Chinese. Through that shows, I can see that my son had improved a lot, especially with his speech.
As a parent, we need to make sure that our kid is not watching any show that are not appropriate for them. Like me, I have a 2-year old so I don't want him to watch action movies where it involves violent scenes, or a show where they're using foul languages. We need to guide our children for them to learn and become a better person when they grow up because it is our responsibility to mold them. So, make sure that you know what your kid(s) is watching on TV.
