Does television help your children? I think it helps mine. Often they will be watching something and their curiosity explodes. They soon are cutting, paisting, and putting on a play. My daughter started reading really young. I attribute it to not only her genious, but to PBS kids and Leapster alphabet shows. My sons art often reflects the video games and movies he watches. I can see how some would think this to be sad. Maybe his inspiration should come from going to the zoo, or playing outside, but he does that too. Petronius said "Moderation in all things including moderation." I like this saying. Should we watch television all the time? NO. Can we once and a while? SURE. A day of television is something we do and enjoy often! I feel as if I am letting you know a dirty secret in our home. But when they watch it and make scenes like these I have to say, I love my children more than anyone could ever know.
I mean what stuffed animal doesn't want to be leashed up by pipe cleaners for a movie night?
