In at least one way, TV is harmful to an infant - every minute spent watching is a minute lost to other, better activities. I guaranty your child would rather watch and listen to you than to the TV.

Peppa Pig is definitely a strong female character :) She is always showing Daddy Pig who's boss. You can watch these on YouTube (usually some adverts though). It's based on very simple, normal, every day life situations such as going on picnics or going to the supermarket. There are a variety of "grown up" characters that are both male and female and have ...
