Thanks for all the suggestions mga mommies..:)

@ Daddy Jojo: Thanks for the input..:)..Actually, ayoko rin po sobrang ma expose ang baby ko sa T.V because I heard negative feedback from the parents who let their children watch TV for long hours..:).. I’m a working mom and mother ko ang nagbabantay sa baby ko and may times na may kailangan siya gawin...that’s the time lang na pinapanood namin siya ng T.V while she’s on her crib or walker..:)..and hindi rin naman siya totally tutok sa T.V because she’ s exploring/playing around at the same time..:)..
Anyway thank you for sharing your strategies Daddy Jo..na impress po ako..:)…I will take note all of those para ma apply ko rin sa baby ko..:)

Hi Mommy louiss,

Thank you for reading what I shared ha.  Since sabi sa research eh wala naman palang mabuting makukuha ang baby natin sa TV, Video at iba pang visual electronic media...dapat lang siguro na alamin natin kung ano nga ba talaga ang makakatulong sa kanila.

(In fact, may research in the recent 5-10 years na nagsasabi na ang blue light mula sa screen ng TV ay nakakasama sa mga bata...yung flickering light mula sa isang cartoon ay nag-cause din noon ng tinatawag ngayon na Pokemon Seizure).

Ano nga ba ang tama sa age ng 8 month old?  Sabi ni Eric Erickson, sa 8-18 months old daw ay Basic Trust vs. Mistrust Stage at nagiging aware na ang baby sa kaniyang environment.  Ito na siguro ang pinaka-critical time para mag-bonding ang parents with the baby.  Hangga't maaari sana, iwasan na hindi tayo nakikipag-interact kay baby.  Hindi siya dapat iiwan na magisa lang at nanonood lang ng TV o Video. 

Siguro ang mga toys ay dapat na mare-reinforce ang orientation ni baby sa family at environment niya. Siguro  a family of dolls and simple blocks that could be used for building. 

Suggested activities - tulungan si baby na gamitin ang mga senses niya, especially ang touch.

Let baby feel and touch different surfaces or textures, like the face, skin, hair of mommy or daddy.  Let baby smell different kinds of fruits, like a banana or orange. 

Play pleasant music.  This creates the feeling of space.  Classical music, specifically Mozart, has been said to provide the most brain activity (please check out Discovery Channel's documentary Smart Babies).

Child Development and Parenting

Social And Emotional Theories Of Development -

Psychosocial Theory – Erickson

Erickson believed that children must resolve specific emotional and
social conflicts at various stages of their development. The level of
success or failure that a child experiences at resolving these
conflicts will in turn affect the child's future level of social
adjustment. A brief listing of some of the early conflicts that
children face is listed below.

Basic Trust –vs- Mistrust – (8 to 18 mos)

Once the child becomes aware of himself in the environment he also
necessarily becomes aware of his own inherent vulnerability. As the
child gradually becomes familiar with the world he must develop a
basic sense of trust that his world is a safe place to be if he is
going to learn to explore and to adapt. To a great extent this sense
of trust can be fostered if the parents and the child's care takers
adequately attend to the child's burgeoning emotional and safety
needs. Children who are cared for, reassured and supported in a
responsive manner are thought to develop a secure basis for developing
a healthy self-image. These children come to believe that the world is
a safe place to be. Consequently they may be more likely to assume
that the people around them will be willing to meet with their needs
in the future.

Conversely, children who are neglected or who otherwise grow up in an
unstable or threatening environment are subjected to intolerable
levels of stress. As a result these children lack the basis for
developing a secure sense of themselves in the world. They may be less
likely to trust that the world is a safe place to be. Eventually they
may come to see their world and the people that inhabit it as unable
to or as unwilling to meet with their needs. To them the world can
appear to be a less than hopeful, if not a hostile place to be.


my baby Nathan is 8 months old and is fond of watching Pocoyo. i only let him watch if i have to do something around the house.

@Daddy Jojo, can you suggest any activities suited for my baby besides watching tv?

Napatunayan po namin sa daughter namin na kung susundin lang ang payo ng mga experts, magiging maayos ang development ng anak natin.  Kitang-kita po namin ang difference compared sa mga batang alam namin na lumaki sa panonood ng TV, paglalaro ng computer at console games.

Sinisiguro po namin, hanggang ngayon, na mas hahanap-hanapin ng anak namin ang bonding o human interaction kesa sa electronic media.

"The American Academy of Pediatrics advises that children under age two watch no television. Studies show that too much television viewing can have negative affects: children may have attention difficulties, they may have delays in language and develop smaller vocabularies, they may have more violent and aggressive play and behavior, and they are more likely to be obese."

What are babies and toddlers viewing?

Since the first Baby Einstein movie was introduced in 1997, there’s been an explosion in screen media targeted at babies and children under 2. Baby Einstein led to television shows like Teletubbies and Classical Baby, Brainy Baby and Baby Mozart videos and DVDs and Babies First TV, a cable channel devoted exclusively to babies. There are even iPhone apps for babies. Almost all of them make implicit or explicit claims about the educational value of their products.
And do they help children learn?

There’s a lot of hype about baby videos and the other products but to date there’s been no real evidence that they are successful as efficient learning tools for toddlers and infants. In a recent study of a Baby Wordsworth video, we found that the babies learned new words far more efficiently interacting with their mothers.

SpongeBob in hot water from study of 4-year-olds

Sabi na nga ba bad for kids si Spongebob

SpongeBob in hot water from study of 4-year-olds

The cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants is in hot water from a study suggesting that watching just nine minutes of that program can cause short-term attention and learning problems in 4-year-olds.

She said parents should realize that young children are compromised in their ability to learn and use self-control immediately after watching such shows. "I wouldn't advise watching such shows on the way to school or any time they're expected to pay attention and learn," she said.

In another test, measuring self-control and impulsiveness, kids were rated on how long they could wait before eating snacks presented when the researcher left the room. "SpongeBob" kids waited about 2 1/2 minutes on average, versus at least four minutes for the other two groups.

our daughter usually watches cartoons from Playhouse Disney to Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. and sometimes Mr. Brean, although alam niya na hindi niya pwede gayahin si Mr. Bean dahil alam niyang acting acting lang iyon. hehe!!

nanonood ako with her pag ang palabas ay mga tipong walang sense at walang matutunan na mga palabas. para ma explain namin kung ano yung bad dun at hindi.

Newborn - 4 months..................introduce them to music preferably classical ones and nursery rhymes. (wag muna TV)
At 5 mos. above..........I highly recommend Little Einstein DVDs & Brainy Baby.....sabayan niyo ng books
Musical Mobile maganda din (with music ha)
1yo above...........anything educational will do.........disney jr., batibot, etc.

Sobrang grabe influence ng TV sa bata kaya proper guidance ang kelangan.

MommyJazz, my son did the same thing to me once. I just told him that little boys and girls should only kiss by "short" :) Since then he hasn't done it again.

Kids will really be exposed to things we try to shield them from so the best thing to do is to just explain it to them.

Parents share their opinions and experiences regarding letting kids watch television.


“Whatever kids watch, they pick up. Whatever they watch everyday, the will certainly learn, and have an impact on them, especially in the language and personality development.“

 “Dora” “encourages critical thinking and learning about Science.”

“The kids only get to watch TV when they’re at my in-laws’ place,”

“My kids are only allowed a maximum of 2 hours TV time. That already includes computer time,”

" I like the fact that Barney teaches basic preschool lessons, encourages kids to behave appropriately, and enjoins the kids to sing and have a positive disposition.”

“Being exposed to TV shows with violent content and foul language allows kids to see these as acceptable, and, most likely, part of the way of life,”

My daughter doesnt like to watch a lot of TV. Nagkaron sya ng Backyardigans phase but it was too short. What she loves to watch in the morning is Brainy Baby Peekaboo and her 1st birthday video. Naka-checklist na yan sa kanya in the morning. Apart from that, play and books sya. I also prefer it that way, mahirap kase pag nasanay na sa TV ang bata, mahirap i-control. I'm also not in favor of introducing electronics at an early age. We sometimes use my ipod touch since she loves the english flashcards application, which is educational naman since she likes imitating the words.
