    Do crafts with him! Whatever show he is watching do a craft with one of the characters. He will have so much fun doing it and you will love spending time with him. I have a hub on kids crafts if you are interested:) Its easy enough for a toddler to do and his mommy will be there to help. Have fun!

    Turning off the television is a good first step. Buy him some books, read to him.

    Get outside and go to the playground, a , play kickball, ring around rosie, all of the outdoor games you played as a kid.

    Then come in for lunch.

    Then lay down for a nap or some quiet time.

    Join the Y and go swimming, there are lots of classes there. Where he can play with ther kids his own age, even while you are exercising.

    Turn it off and hand him a book, take him outside for a walk.  But don't get into the habit of letting the TV babysit.  I raised children and I understand how hard it is NOT to let them park in front of the TV just so I could have a break.  But it isn't good for them.

    Limit TV time and be sure and control what he is watching.

    Limit him the time to watch television. Each kids program last 30min. So, tell him that he can watch 2 program and turn off the t.v. Occupy his time with books, go for a walk, play blocks with him or paint his favorite cartoon character. You have to give him a limit, otherwise it will become a bad habit, glue his eyes on the t.v. set all day. Hence it will distract his meal times and future studies.
