Honestly, I did not even think this would be controversial! I never thought twice about letting my little one watch a movie in the car. That said, he never did until we bought a DVD player for a long trip. My family lives 6.5 hours away (meaning an 8 hour trip with kids).
He does not watch TV in the car unless the trip is a long one. Mainly because I do not want to have to set up and take down the player.
So is this a controversial topic? Do any of you have a problem with kiddos watching TV in the car? I can see the benefit of staring out the window to a point… but then again, I do not stare out the window the entire time. And, time seems to go so much slower for kids. The radio, car games, coloring books, etc can only go so far.
