Ugh! Make it stop!
We limit the amount of time our kids watch tv and what they watch. Our usual stand bys are PBS, Food Network, History Channel or National Geographic. However recently as our 6-year-old was recovering from Mono, we allowed him to watch a show or two on a few different kid over load channels. Little did we know that within mere minutes we would be inundated with “I want that’s” from all three kids! At least while watching Food Network, the kids get excited about foods, flavors, or travel destinations.
Now I set the DVR to record any interesting shows, kid movies, etc, that way we can fast forward through all the crap cramming sessions. Take that commercial hell!
