And still have to contend with a kid glued to the TV.
Seriously? And you think this is a better option than playing music?
Having kids "glued" to the television is not healthy. For the eyes, mind, body or soul.
I can kinda understand the wife having veto power (a lot
of p-whipped dudes around here, lolz), but letting a kid be in charge of the house? Why I never!
Man, things sure have changed since I was a kid.
I think you're doing a disservice to your child by putting the boob tube over music. They develop healthy and unhealthy habits early, I would think that music (or books) would have a better "influence" over a young and growing mind.
But that's just my opinion...
