How Do I Stop My Child From Watching Too Much TV? (wordy wednesday)

I can’t sleep. I have to stop taking a nap in the afternoon. I just got the longest nap in many years. It’s good to stay home, no need to worry if I have to wake up early the next day or if I am still awake after midnight.

These are RC's various facial expressions while watching her favorite DVDs. When she was at the daycare center, I did not mind her being excited to go home and running to the TV the moment we get inside the apartment. I know that she was doing other activities there. I received lots of her art work and they did a lot of outdoor activities.





This will be a tough challenge for me especially I like watching TV myself, I have to do some housework and blogging work (speaking of blog work, I just lost a 300+ word article that I made for a review). So my question, how do I stop her from watching too much TV? She just got over her sickness so tomorrow, I’ll try to start going to the park. Well, I planned to do it twice a day but since I am not yet sleeping, tomorrow will only be once. I tried playing with her with clay, painting and plastic foods and kitchen items (so fun!) but whenever I shut the TV off even if she’s doing other activities she will cry. She at least needs to hear it going! Oh my, so demanding. She was sick too and had trouble with breathing so I was trying not to make her cry. I am having a hard time sleeping at night because I am worried about her breathing. She is so much better now thankfully.


Her headband and necklace are handmade by me. I want to start making some dresses for her or "upcycling" some clothes even if I just use my hands for sewing. I still did not buy a sewing machine. 


I love these pictures of her. I’m glad I took them. She is a big girl already and likes all girly stuff like wearing headbands, necklaces and dresses.

She is so cute, and I love your headband and necklace! It is really hard to keep them from watching too much tv, but you have to. Just explain to her that it isn't good for her and try to get her to play independently some. It will really help her in the long run!
