- how much beebies..
Good question. i think my wife lets my two (5 and 2) watch too much. However, i also think it’s the manner of watching it. If you dump the kids in front of it all day so you don’t have to interact with them, that’s bad; if you sit with them and discuss what you’re seeing why is it so different to reading together? A lot of cbeebies programs are quite educational / informative, and the kids do pick up on it. My eldest for example often walks away from it to go onto the dining table with her pens and paper and copies things she’s seen on Mr Maker; both are interested in wildlife driven in no small part by Bill Oddie admiring Kate’s beaver on springwatch, or the Green Balloon club…..

I love Cbeebies, Mr Tumble, In the Night Garden, Lazy Town, Nina & the Nuerons. etc,,, My mrs reckons I watch the TV more when granddaughter visits than my said Granddaughter, Although I will say, the children are only young once – you cannot turn the clock back so never ever deprive them of anything,,,, by the way second childhood begins when you become Grandparents – theres soooo much time to play 😛Posted 10 years agomiketuallySubscriber
Ours (3 and 5) watch very varying amounts and they’re generally doing other stuff too.
It’s often on on a morning while we’re getting ready for school, though some mornings it doesn’t go on at all. Also useful for keeping them occupied while the wife’s getting the tea ready and I’m not back from work, but they often just ignore it. The eldest is a whizz with iPlayer now, so they pick and choose what they want to watch.
When they’re not on the internet, obviously.Posted 10 years ago
