I have a first break from my close-to-two year old for three days coming up next weekend. Going to give myself creative and nourishing time, writing, drawing, plus the stuff that's hard to get around to, like decluttering. I want to crowd source the best netflix shows that you have found enjoyable/helpful especially as a mother... I'm planning on watching the brene brown show, and mar... More
Have a sick 3 yr old at home - and generally illness means never ending Peppa Pig and Thomas Marathons in my house. Lol My questions is, do you guys set limits on screen time when your littles are sick?? I feel like being sick is a valid excuse for screen time. I guess the problem in our house is because my daughters sick - my son who is perfectly healthy ends up in front of the tv most of the ... More
My husband’s idea of spending time with our 2 y/o is turning on the TV while browsing on his phone. When I try to address with my husband, he scolds me to let him do things his own way. We have a newborn so my husband has had to help more (meaning more tv) and now my son throws major tantrums when he can’t watch tv at other times, even when I try to engage him in something like games or reading...

Ok so since November I have been pretty depressed and I'll be honest, I didn't really know it til now. But I've been on serious auto pilot concerning everything, even my 18 month old. We wake up and I have basically stuck her in front of the tv till it's time for sleep again. Something clicked into place and I realized this. I'm taking the tablet away except for an hour a d...

Hi! I’m looking for some appropriate movies (or tv shows) for my 2 year old son. We’ve done Daniel Tiger, Thomas the Train, Bubble Guppies, Sesame Street and the movie Cars. Anything else? Thanks! And yes, I am aware of monitoring screen time - we go and do a variety of activities - but when they’re sick or it rains for days on end a movie or two doesn’t hurt. They will still go to college 😉
They’re in the same room, well within range to see the screen. It isn’t a cartoon or anything entertaining for them either. It’s the news, documentary or sports.
It doesn’t seem to matter what we are watching, he will sit there enraptured by it for 20-30 minutes. At first it was cute, but now I’m a little concerned... should I be?
We struggle with our 5 year old who is currently interested in scary movies. He has split homes and the knowledge of it has come from the opposite home. Often, different characters come out at different times and has taken his father and I by shock. He has mentioned Pennywise, Michael Myers, Jason, Freddy, etc. At our house, we do not allow scary videos, movies or figures. It all started about ... More
My 18 month old recent discovered blippi and is obsessed. Before this he never gave the tv a chance now all he wants to do is watch blippi. He’s sick of his toys (Christmas is coming so I’m buying toys for then) and where I live it’s now full blown winter now and hard to get out to the park or for a walk. I’ve been trying to keep him entertain and do creative things with him be he only lasts so... More

I keep telling him that's not realistic but I don't want to crush his dreams. What should I do or say?
All of the shows are in French with minimal English-speaking early learners can't follow along... Any suggestions??
