Screen time for kiddos πŸ“±πŸš¨πŸ™Š

Do you have strict guidelines or rules for your kiddos around screen time? Do you limit use of phones or iPads a little, or maybe altogether?

Real life experiences always win over screens. We’ll only possibly introduce tv after he’s 2 (for those desperate moments) and it will only be shows that don’t impair attention/lead to behavioral challenges proven by research I.e. those with scene changes >every 4 seconds, no saturated primary colors, no words/songs/animation all happening at once. @jerricasannes on IG has great info

No screen time until 2. My kids are suspected autistic so it actually helps regulate their emotions and themselves.

My main concern is EMF radiation.

Yes. Whilst I was heavily pregnant and the first 6-7 weeks of having bub 2 our toddler would watch tv so much. Because I was just too exhausted. However her behaviour got quiet bad. Lots of tantrums and heightened emotions when no was said haha. We then put in place a no tv before 4:30/5pm rule and since then she has gone back to the well behaved, polite, good listening girl we had before! No iPad though unless we are driving to Sydney or flying to Lismore. She asked to watch the iPad instead of nap one day the other week and I let her but when it was time to turn it off she absolutely flipped it. Where as when we say tv off she happily turns it off....
