I understand your concern. Since he is hardly one and a half it would be easy to distract him. Initially he will resist and cry. Rt is alright. Ignore the tantrum. Be firm about not giving in. Keep explaining that he will not get to watch. He will gradually understand that he cannot get away with tantrums. Focus on distracting him by taking him outdoors in the evenings; playing with him indoors. Introduce him to books. Use stories. I know it would be difficult for elders in the family but if you could restrict yourselves from watching it would help. You could remove deactivate the set top box for sometime. Watching television will hamper linguistic development.
