It's a good thing!

Finally, my local 10 o'clock news team brings me some good news!!

They shared about a recent study that shows while TV viewing isn't making my kids any smarter, at least it isn't killing their brain cells either!! Thank goodness!!  

I mean, whatever, why would I care? My kids NEVER watch TV. ROFL  Have I mentioned that I consider the $$ I spent on our wireless router worth its weight in good as it allows me to youtube up something to calm my 1 year old no matter the time.  He loves music and really loves music videos.  You'd be amazed what you can get by simply punching in kids music on youtube!  I tell you there's hours of instant temper tantrum ending stuff.



  1. I am so with you! I think TV gets a bad rap. Kids today know so much more about the world than they did in the past. My daughter can count to ten in Spanish (thanks, Handy Manny), tell me the eating habits of a three-toed sloth (thanks, Diego) and has an AMAZING vocabulary (thanks Martha, Wordgirl, Olivia). I think that as long as you don't let them watch garbage (garbage in=garbage out), TV is doing more good than harm.

  2. What Rae Ann said, so say I.


    Me too.

  3. I don't know about anyone else, but TV helped me through the toughest years of having 3 kids under 5 with no family or babysitter. I knew I could have a shower if my 3 year old and 5 year old were watching Dragon Tales while the baby napped.

    My advanced TV training of my kids paid off big time when I started taking them to local performances. They behave like angels at movies, musicals and ballets. They will watch anything, though I don't know if this is a good thing?

  4. I have tagged you...come on over to my blog to see what it is about!

  5. All three of my kids loved music too. and music is soothing. They watch TV too, but when they were little it had to be educational, now I monitor close, but let them watch things like Hannah Montana or other disney things that are just entertainment and may not be educational. They need time to wind down too. LOL

  6. Thanks for stopping by..... and YOUR family is beautiful.
    I like your blog....

    Have a great day.
