    Yeah regular TV in a centre environment I would be annoyed with. The occasional short program to extend an interest (eg animals or transport etc) I would be okay with.

    At our daycare they don't have a tv. When I start family day care I don't plan on using a tv unless there are exceptional circumstances (an extremely challenging day, a week of wet weather, heatwave etc) and even then it would be very carefully considered.

    The main point I was trying to make in my previous posts is that TV can be used responsibly and interactively and that TV use does not automatically indicate lazy or unskilled educators. I fail to see how watching the occasional documentary on a TV is any different to doing it on a computer via youtube. I actually don't think that TV should be used for entertainment on a regular basis at childcare. The only time it has at our center is when it has been raining for a week or more and even then, not every day, maybe once in that rainy period. I would be annoyed as a parent if my child was watching regular TV just because. I just don't see it as the devil is all.

    TV is a non-negotiable issue for me. If our childcare were ever to have one, DS would be going elsewhere as soon as possible.

    But then I carry one of these for use in waiting rooms, stores, etc.:

    TV-B-Gone Universal TV Power Remote Control Keychain


    ... so perhaps I'm not typical in this regard.

    Yikes I hope you're joking about using that device in waiting rooms. It could just be because I've spent a hell of a lot of time in waiting rooms lately, but if someone turned the tv off just because they don't approve of it I would be very put out.
    Sit where you can't see it, ask the receptionist how long the wait will be and go for a walk, read a book and ignore it, but don't impose your beliefs on others.
    Sometimes that Telly is a life line from boredom for someone who has been waiting for hours (a lot of waiting areas don't have magazines anymore, my phone also runs down quickly, I don't lug a book around with me everywhere, I have too much crap in my bag already). I also get a bit of social anxiety, having something to focus on helps enormously.

    WTF? This cannot be serious? So those mums and dads of kids with serious illness and spend hours in waiting rooms it's a god send. Seriously I would be royally pi55ed if somebody did that in a waiting room and would loose my sh1t

    I think Duncan might be doing some promotion? No normal functioning human would do that in a waiting room.

    Say what ?!?!?!

    Relax dude. You aren't the boss of the world! If you don't want your precious little humans watching tv so be it, but you can't go around determining what others can do out in public.

    I dunno, but to me, that seems a little wacky and freakishly controlling. Yikes!
