My Little Man Watching “Dora”

I’m not big on letting my little ones watch TV. We have a movie night every Saturday when we all sit down and watch a kid-appropriate show, but otherwise I try to keep TV time at a minimum. Yet, when I occasionally have to go out alone, more often than not I come back home to find that my husband has turned on the TV and all kids are sitting glued to the screen watching some kind of a TV show. Over time, they’ve even gotten to the point where they have favorite shows. These days it’s mostly “Dora” for all of them. I suppose it could be worse, they could be liking “Sponge Bob” or a similar show full of fast moving images.

I captured this image of my little man the other day when he was watching Dora with his sister. And yes, this time it was me who turned the show on. I wanted to try out orange and diffusion filters on my Yashica and needed the kids to sit still for 20 minutes. Yes, TV makes for an excellent babysitter…
