According to Brillbaby (n.d.) there are two schools of thought on this. The American Academy of Paediatrics recommends that children under 18 months must not be allowed to watch screen media other than video-chatting. Other child experts believe that limited amounts of high-quality educational TV can be beneficial, especially when accompanied with adult interaction. Assuming you decide to let your child watch some TV before age two, there are three main points to bear in mind to ensure that television watching remains a safe and beneficial activity for your baby. These are: content (preferably educational, high quality programming), limited quantity of exposure, and always with supervision. Parents of young children should watch media with their child, to help children understand what they are seeing.
