I am a lover of old fashioned family values. I pride myself on bringing up my children with good manners and morals based on these old fashioned views.
There is something very special about the way we were, and how we were brought up. Children were children. They played boardgames, read books, baked, had adventures in the garden. Its frightening how dependant the children of today are on televisions, computers and the Internet!.
Which brings me to this;
My husband came home the night before Christmas eve with a flat screen TV, built in DVD player in fuchsia pink. It was for our daughter. Shes three!.
Don't get me wrong, I let my children watch TV all the time, probably too much sometimes, but I think there need to be boundaries. It seems we found out the hard way, we now have a very upset, grumpy girl but I'm sure once we are tucked up in bed tonight with a good book she will forget all about it. We have just started Coraline, which she has seen on DVD, and she loves it!.
What are your views on this matter?. Am I being too hard?. Or am I right?. I'd love to know what you all think.
