    A lady told me recently she doesn't turn on the tv at night until their ds goes to bed. I thought...hmm...if we did that we often would never get to watch any TV!

    I always have the tv on whenever we are home, but I never have it on anything but kids' shows until the kids are in bed.

    Default 16 month old obsessed with watching TV!! Help!!

    Haven't bothered reading comments cause I'm sure there are a few Judgey McJudgeypants out there that would just irritate me lol. My DD is 20 months. She has the TV for about 15mins while she eats her brekky, 15 mins at snack time, 30 mins at lunch and then another 15 mins for afternoon snack time. She only ever gets ABC2 or a Disney film. The rest of the time the TV is off. If she starts trying to turn it on (which she will occasionally do) I just put some music on and we do mad dancing for a bit - that usually diverts her attention. Otherwise we go for a walk to the letterbox etc just to remove her from the lure of the TV.

    If you can't distract your LO from the TV while in the house then use it as an opportunity to go outside and play or (in case of awful weather) go into another part of the house. My DD likes to empty out one of the kitchen cupboards (I've made it the safe one but she still thinks she's being cheeky lol) or rearrange my shoes etc. just find something that works for you :-)
