My daughter is 21 months old and I allow her to watch educational videos with me as we sing and dance and learn Together she can also watch a movie before bed but there is breaks throughout the day to let her read with mommy practice our ABC and counting and playing with educational toys to learn I find it very important to encourage books and learning as much as possible and I love that my baby will walk away from a TV to read a book with mommy so yeah restrictions are a must in my house hold but all mom's know what's best for their little one and not all babies are alike their special. Unique buddles of joy sent from up above for us to raise and love
We leave my daughters tv running and it’s typically background noise. Like she’s currently wrestling with my husband and her tv is on. The phone though, I give it to her only when she behaves and it’s not fully charged... so when it dies she’s knows that time is over.
Studies apparently show kids who learn to use them under age of three-two, grow up with anxiety and depression. I don’t know a lot about it but it’s a worth a look up. I only have a 8 month so I don’t know a lot about that yet, but I say with good games to learn a hour doesn’t hurt a day. Due to having so many nieces and nephews
During the school year my 7yo gets 4hrs on his DS that he can use friday-sunday, and half hour of TV weekdays.
My son is almost 6 months old... This may be an unpopular opinion but I prefer TV screen time over tablets or phones. He's already showing a great interest in my husband's and I's phones. I actively try not to be on it around my son or when he starts getting grabby I hide it/put it away.
Not exactly sure what the future holds but I have strong feelings on limited computer/phone/tablet time.
