Screen time...

Screen time, oh such a divide is caused by this. It can be such a great tool to give you a bit of time to re-gain focus and re-charge, especially if you are with your little ones all day. But when that tool looses it's magic it can become a battle and an addiction for our little ones. ⁠

The World Health Organization recommends no screen time for children under 3 and screen time of no more than 1 hour for children ages 3 and 4. ⁠

Generally nannies will avoid screen time with children and we advise the following;⁠

Don’t give your kids their own tablet or smartphone.⁠

Make computers and TVs stay in the shared spaces of your home. ⁠

Add tech-free time to your family’s schedule. ⁠

Watch how often you use your own devices. ⁠

Make limits a regular part of screen use. ⁠

Help your kids find other ways to have fun.⁠

Make tech work for you. ⁠

What's your view? How much screen time do you allow your children?
