My 3 month old baby watches TV.
He also stares at computer screens, mirrors, and people making funny faces, but that’s not as alarming.
About 2 days after we brought him home from labor and delivery I noticed his eyes were fixed on the screen. I had a mind to turn it off right then and there, but it’s already too late.
Not that watching TV is bad. We’ve all met hyper-educated people who claim not to watch TV, but few if any claim not to like it. You may not like the local news or TMZ or reality shows, but the medium is here to stay as my son has taught us.
I haven’t got to teach him the alphabet, the 23rd Psalm, or even how to hold a fork, but he knows how to watch TV. And he’ll watch anything, which is where we come in as parents, I suppose.
