Good morning 😊
The past 4 to 5 days Chloe has watched more TV than usual. She goes through phases of watching it daily and then goes weeks without it.
This is usually determined by the weather. If it’s nice outside that’s where we spend most of our day. Lately we have had a lot of rain, so we are stuck inside. Chloe will play for awhile, but then gets agitated because she can’t go outside to play. She loves a few Disney movies and loves to watch them in a certain order. OCD ALERT!! Toy Story 3 is her favorite right now.
Do I worry about her TV watching? Not really. It depends on how she watches it. She use to zone out every time, but now she interacts so much with the movie. I actually love listening to her talk to the characters. If she starts to zone out more I know its time for a break. Chloe is actually very good at knowing she needs a break. She will say “TV off” and go play in her room.
The weather is beginning to change and warmer days are here. She has a new therapy swing and a new swing set. She will be in heaven once everything is put together and she can play outside all day.
So am I worried about TV overload right now. Nope. She will easily transition out of TV to outside play.
Do your children go through times where they watch a lot of TV?
