Wow. My two year old is a big fan "Bubble Guppies" and "Caillou" and I truthfully haven't thought a whole lot about how much she watches. After stumbling across this article, we will be spending today outside. Not that I think her tv intake is doing any harm, but I do agree with Tom that playing outdoors allows kids to use their imagination and creativity in ways much more productive than sitting in front of the boob tube. This entire blog is definitely something worth checking out.
