My 3-year-old son is addicted to the TV. One day in frustration I told him "mein TV katwa doongi" (spoken very colloquially I actually meant to say that I will get the cable connection terminated so that there will be no more TV watching in the house)

Being young, he still is not aware of the concept of channels coming through cable connection/digital connections etc. and took what i was saying literally to the word.

After a bit of thinking, he said, "Ok mumma, get it cut from the sides but leave the centre bit."

wow - love this one. In fact I have had a similar experience with my niece sometime back. I told her "Kaan khol ke sun lo". She put her hands on both her ears and innocently asked, "Kaise Kholun, Maamu?"

If your son is always watching TV means you don't spend enough time with him. Make your son busy with playing or doing some other activities. For that you have to spend more time with your son.

My son is now 7 and my daughter is only 5 and it seems to me that I began to notice something similar in the behavior of my children too. We monitor what our children watch, but it's not always easy, so I unplug the TV and hide the cable. But I can't do it all the time and they might find the cable. My eldest son is very bright for his age. But my friend, she is also a mother, and she advised me to read the reviews on https://metropcs.pissedconsumer.com/review.html and see how other parents are doing. I found some helpful feedback there on how to properly set up individual accounts. Especially for children, you can create a profile without a password, in which they can log in and watch pre-selected channels and programs for a certain time.
