My child is 4.5 and her tv time is about one episode of Sesame Street on the weekend if she remembers it. This only started like 6 months ago when she got sick and we were trying to make her rest. I think if you start the kid off with books and fun activities, they don’t tend to find tv that interesting. When my daughter was younger, when we went to other people’ houses and they had tv on, she would watch for 5 minutes and lose interest. Real world is a lot more interesting to her.

This is my anecdotal experience. Boys tend to like “busier” things like playing with cars etc. girls like to read books and pretend play which both involve talking and learning more vocabulary.
