Television can expose your child to things that you have tried to protect them from especially violence, drug abuse, commercials and relationships etc. Follow these TV parental guidelines and show them children’s programme only.

This TV parental guideline suggests that you should limit children television viewing to 1-2 hours for each day.

For TV watching, do not allow your children to have a TV set in their bedrooms.

Review the ratings of children’s programme which shows healthy entertainment.

This parental guideline suggest, watch television with your children, and discuss what is happening during the show, discuss options and more suitable things that characters could have done for unsuitable behaviours and actions. Also teach your children to be critical of the messages that are being conveyed through TV watching.

Here are some of the children’s programmes which include: Sesame Street, Barney & Friends, Bob The Builder, Bear in the Big Blue House, Arthur, Dragon Tales, Blue's Clues, Dora Explorer, Thomas the Tank Engine, Spongebob, Squarepants. Older kids would love to watch Bill Nye the Science Guy, Wishbone and Beakman's World etc.
