Quoting lilredsmurfy:" I don't turn it on in the morning, only because there's no time to watch a show AND get ready, but when ... [snip!] ... watch TV. It has no power. And really, anyone who has a TV on in the background knows that half the time no one is watching it."
I agree too much control usually causes a lot of fuss for kids, but not always.
Yeah when the baby sleeps and its just me here, it stays on. i have a few shows I watch but at night only, when all are in bed. Other then that its backround noise. lol
Its funny cause this morning my mom was here so I had it on one of those morning shows a lo was all upset. I picked up the remote and right away she looked at the tv so I put mickey mouse clubhouse on and she turned and smiled at me. lol Then zoned right into it.
It was different then her normal morning routine and she knew it too. She didnt want us watching her tv time. lol
