Children sometimes cannot distinguish between what they need and what they want. Shelter, food and clothing are needs. Eating out, cable TV, cell phones, computers, and video games are wants. Wants can be worked towards but not an entitlement.
TV Safety Tip
Place flat panel TVs low to the ground and near the backs of their stands. This will prevent them from toppling onto young kids.
Parents must secure flat-panel TVs, which have narrow centers of gravity. There are high incidences of them falling over onto young children.
