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 bein... More

4 years ago, I met an amazing guy.. almost too good to be true.. he was sweet, caring, thoughtful, and we spent every minute together.. neither of us had our own place so we couldn't have each other over so we both decided to move in with a mutual friend so we could be together until we found our own place.. it was the best 5-6 months I've ever spent with anyone, wasn't the best pla...

The Dungeons & Dragons game rescuing kids from their social anxieties https://www.cnet.com/news/game-to-grow-the-dungeons-dragons-game-rescuing-kids-from-their-social-anxieties/
I’ve read the articles and I think I understand why most studies show that too much screen time can be disabling to children. However, I believe that it can be a useful tool to their growing brains as well. Of course, if done in moderation. He’s only 3 and my wife and I are very conscious of how much TV, phone, tablet or video games he can have or have access too, but I’m curious. What do othe... More
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
