Do you? It's the only way ds is able to entertain himself, but always feel guilty!

Thanks for replying smile
Really want to take the guilt off, can never relax because I'm always either entertaining/occupying ds or feeling guilty about letting him be on screens!

I used to feel guilty but I think I was an over anxious first time parent trying to do everything by the book. It used to worry me too as DS used to zone out while watching it

We do lots of different things with DS so there's no harm letting him relax and watch TV. He actually seems to learn a surprising amount of vocabulary, jokes and facts etc from movies so there is an upside. I use it as a reward for him doing his school work etc. While he's watching TV it's my time to do housework or have a break away from him.
