Television and young children

Many Caribbean parents are worried about the influence of television on their young children. Here's my take on this.It may be difficult monitoring what they watch, but make an effort to watch programs with them. and comment on the programs so that you give them a framework in which to interpret what they see.

Think about it. You constantly give guidance by commenting on what you think is appropriate behavior in many different areas, whether it be suitable manner of dress, bad manners, unsatisfactory behavior etc. Do it for the television program content as well. Watch programs with your children- The spin off - more bonding time and you just may enjoy some of those programs - many are highly entertaining and informative.

Of course you could always cancel or severely curtail tv time and read a book with them
-Utopia!!!!!! for authors
