My son Leonardo,3 yrs. old is very much fond of cartoons show on TV. After taking a bath in the morning before going to school he always ask me to watch his favorite cartoon channel and again after he returns home from school. As a mom, i think that is too much but then he cries a lot if i'll not allow him to watch. So, what I did is I made a deal with him.
The Deals are: I'll let him watch his favorite cartoons as long as he will eat his breakfast first and that when i'll said we have to go to school now really means we have to go. And in the afternoon I'll let him watch as long as he will be good, eat his dinner at dinner time and go to sleep on time.
Well, so far so good. And besides, I'll let him watch only the educational cartoons shows like in Playhouse Disney Channel. He is 3 years old and understand everything I asked him to do. He is such a very sweet and loving kid and always gives me a kiss even without a reason. Isn't that so sweet? I'm just a very proud mom of him.
