The Effect of TV is More Disturbing Than I Thought

It is hard to raise your child with no TV. I tried really hard to be a purist about it, but that meant I had to talk to my kid… like all the time!  Yet it is something I do have concerns about, because TV turns The Munch into a zombie.  She stares at the screen like she is catatonic, and it is disturbing.  So unless she is sick, I don’t let The Munch watch anything at home, but I do let her watch the IPad in the car… and we are in the car everyday so that is happening…

I think part of my trepidation is that I watched a lot of TV growing up.  I was a “latch key kid” and so TV was the family I came home to.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Facts of Life, Growing Pains, Out of This World, He-Man, GI- Joe, Brady Bunch, Alf, Harry and the Hendersons, Small Wonder, The Wonder Years, Beverly Hills 90210, were all charters that kept me company.  I don’t blame my parent’s for this – I know they were busy and working hard… buuuuuuut they are the reason why my brain is rotted like a cesspool of toxic sludge according to this article, so thanks a lot mom and dad.

There are many studies that discuss the impact of TV on your kid’s brain, but you know what?  I don’t think I need anyone to tell me the effect of TV on my kid.  All I have to do is watch The Munch watch stuff, and it is pretty obvious that she is totally hypnotized.  So much so that she ignores everything else to the point of near insanity.  For example, we were driving home from Boston the other day and she mumbled something about having to go potty.

Toni: Munch, you have to go potty? Is that what you said? Do you want me to stop?

SILENCE

Toni: Munch, are you listening to me?

SILENCE

Toni: MUNCH! Do you need to go potty or what? Should I pull over?

Munch: Naw, I just peed in my pants.

You would think she was joking… but no.  She actually peed in her pants because she was too distracted / didn’t want to stop watching to go to the bathroom.  And the crazy part is, that for the rest of the hour long drive home, she didn’t complain once about sitting in her own urine, and stayed totally captivated by Curious George.

(You see that look in her eye? I could be on fire doing cartwheels and she wouldn’t look up)

    Personally, I think you are making it too much of a forbidden fruit. And you were not a latch key kid. You just did not notice when I was home. We watched TV with you, discussed the plots and your learned a tremendous amount of literary criticism by our dissecting poor plot lines and good plot lines from good tv and bad. Same thing with movies. She watcjhes Curious George with great intenisty because she is judging his motives and figuring out the cosequences of his actions. Discuss it with her. It’s actually a well thought out show.

    You might end up with the same effect as withholding candy or certain foods from the child. Sure you’re looking out for their best interest but they end up psychologically putting it on a pedestal and over eating it later. Same thing for TV. There should be moderation but you should focus more on other things to do rather than restricting it so harshly

    I totally agree with your thought and can relate to your background. I feel like I was pretty much robbed of my childhood…because of that idiot box. And I raised my four boys without a TV in the house and don’t regret it for a second. I don’t think they feel deprived either.
