No screen time - thoughts?
I would like no screen time for my current 16 month old. However we do show her videos and photos of herself on our phones, sometimes she watches us on our phones, sometimes we turn on the news/Netflix in the background while we play/lie in bed waiting for her to fall asleep. I am really strict with screen time. Especially involving other people that aren’t her parents. I don’t want them being the ones giving screen time and spoiling her. Recently she wants us to hold our phones and show her stuff. She throws fits when we don’t. But normally she is showing signs of extreme interest. Husband has let her watch YouTube videos of dancing kids while his mom watched her and we had date night. But normally, no/limited screen time. I understand we live in a technology world and half my job and half my me-time is done on my phone. I worked an event at work tonight and came home to husband watching Coco with her. I got so mad and anxious. Am I too controlling? Should I let him watch a Disney movie with her when she’s single daddy-ing it? Is that a sign of lazy parenting on his part? If we introduce screen time to her, should I only allow it when we are home with her? And keep to no screen time with caretakers, She’s currently at home with grandmas at my house during the work day. I don’t know how to manage this. I really want the best for her. I don’t want her screen addicted. I also have control issues hahaha advice anyone?
