Hi Bridget,

I was reading your page on Screen time (very good info, thank you!)and I was wondering if you had a recommendation on what TV shows are good for kids? We have a two year old. Do you think Sponge bob is OK? How about Curious George or Thomas?

Thank you

Brianna

Good Question
by: Bridget

I have heard that Sponge Bob moves too fast for kids and it is not recommended for children under 4.

My son loves Curious George and I like how they try to make it educational. Also, I find it entertaining and cute. A lot of shows on PBS kids are a great place to start. Make sure that the shows are educational, slow, and age appropriate. Also, remember to try to limit screen time to 30 minutes or less per day!

Good Question!
