New Study Reveals Toddlers Watch 32+ Hours of Television a Week

How Much Television Does Your Child Watch?

It seems most every mother I know is guilty of placing their child in front of the television for a minute or two so they can cook a meal or make a call to the pediatrician without interruptions. Before they know it, a minute turns into an hour and soon enough, cartoons are mama's new babysitter. A new study says toddlers are watching 32 or more hours of television a week. That may sound like a lot but when you start to add up those hours of Sesame Street and bouts of Sprout, it may be more realistic than she suspected.

My 8 yr old daughter is not really much of a TV person.During the week she watches maybe an hour of TV after homework and on the weekends only about an hour and a half at night. She's more of an outdoor lover and actually prefers being outside playing with her friends or doing anything sports related.

I want to vote twice because my 5 year old watches like 2 hours a day but my toddler doesn't watch any, she has no interest.
