Too much TV

I've been feeling some strong guilt lately for the amount of television I let Toddler watch. He demands his favorite shows at all times of day, and often it is just plain easier to give in and let him watch. I get the nice bonus of him being happy while I get a few moments to myself. I know that the AAP recommends that kids watch very little television, and that kids under 2 watch NONE. Of course this only strengthens my guilt because Infant is often zoned out in front of the TV with her brother. I almost jumped for joy when I read this Slate article yesterday: The Benefits of Bozo . Is it wrong that even a glimmer of hope that I am not permanently damaging my children's brains makes me so happy?
