    Your centres philosophy is based off the eylf.

    The EYLF curriculum is also meant to be flexible also. There is no set rule that says educators should not use television as a learning tool. Watching a little educational tv every now and then is a great way for children to stay connected to the world around them.

    Nope, quite serious. How is it being rude to turn off a loud, intrusive entertainment system that is being forced on everyone else in the vicinity? Not everyone wants the inane drivel that passes for most television programming blasted at them everywhere they go. And that's not mentioning the ads. I would in all seriousness prefer you lit up a cigarette than turned on a TV. I can deal with a bad smell and a bit of smoke much more easily than a chat show.

    Furthermore, it's not like anyone asks. You know, "mind if I watch TV?" No, the assumption is that you don't have to ask, and that anyone who objects is weird and wrong. Turning off a TV without asking is no ruder than using one without asking.

    For what it's worth I've owned such a gadget years before DS was born. It's not a 'protect my precious snowflake' thing.

    Re. spam, the link was just to give people an idea of the device. It's not an affiliate link, I don't make any money from them, I don't own shares in the company, etc etc. I just wish more people had them and used them

    If that makes me a lunatic so be it. I'll happily wear that label if it means I don't have to listen to an infomercial for ab trainers while waiting with my wife for our dating scan.

    Ok, so you would honestly rather your family be surrounded by cancer causing chemicals than TV? Really? I find that concept incredibly selfish. 'I don't mind if their health is compromised so long as I don't have to watch Telly.' And any I have come across are always very silent.

    That's kind of weird. The whole cigarette thing preferred over TV. TV has no impact on your health while sitting in a waiting room. Can't you just read a magazine or something? Or bring a book. Look on your phone. I get ****ed when there is no TV in a waiting room.
