When it’s my husband’s turn to watch the kids, he turns on cartoons while he plays video games in another room.
They are 2 and 4 years old. He is unable to see them but and he says he can hear them if something goes wrong.
They cannot go to him because of a baby gate.
I have the following problems with this:
1. He spends very little time with them.
2. I don’t feel this is enough supervision, even baby-proofed homes can have unknown dangers.
3. They’ve done things they shouldn’t, like drawn on the walls and covered the cat with apple sauce.
4. Some TV is fine, but this adds up to quite a lot throughout the week.
I don’t like to have the kids out of sight for more than a few minutes. Am I being overprotective? Overreacting?
