Hi Teachers, I'm looking for some websites, articles, some kind of documentation that supports playing music while children play. My husband and I are having a "debate" this week. He feels that it's fine to have the tv on while our 20 month old daughter plays in the room. Noting violent or graphic, like cash cab, everybody loves raymond, dirty jobs, etc. I disagree. I think that even though she's not "watching" it, she still looks up at it from time to time and it's a distractor and not going to allow her to develop a normal attention span. I have found a couple articles online to support this. However, I can't find anything that supports playing music. Because my husband came back with..."well then playing music would do the same thing". So, I'm basically looking for some support to help me win this debate...that is assuming I am correct. Thanks!!
