I think we have a limited unlimited use of the phone , he doesn't have a restricted amount of time but also there are times he isn't able to have the phone, not at church, not during prayer, not at the table while eating(but after the meal/before the meal he is able to IF he wants)
I personally don't allow my daughter any screen time. Occasionally, I might have a show on and she might glance at the television but generally if I watch TV it's after she's gone to bed. Granted she's only 16 months old.
Khan academy is so great for kids, you don’t have to worry about bad things embedded in their videos or anything. It’s like a free abc mouse, my three year old knows more about chameleons than I do. Screen time is great when used in the correct way. He watches a lot of crashbox on HBO GO which teaches him math skills, reading, spelling, counting, about famous people and other things. He is three and is extremely advanced for his age especially with language skills he “presented” me with a fake bug the other day.....
Unfortunately for us, it has done a major injustice to our son. He was given too much time ( my husband and I disagree and dispute this)
But I feel like our son is unable to entertain himself and lacks creativity, concentration, and patience because he expects immediate results and zero effort to have fun.
I’m also struggling to get him to learn the alphabet and numbers and such... because I’m not as exciting as a video game. 😩🧐🤔
I allow educational songs, games and shows while in car mostly. That along with our play time, educational toys and reading, my twin 21 month olds can count to 40, identify all letters of the alphabet and know their sounds. They know shapes, animals and number to almost 100.
