Each day, laptop and children permitting, I’ll share a prompt that’s been on my mind, and a few of my thoughts.
You are welcome to share your own perspective in the comments, or just journal it out!
What are my thoughts on screentime? What do I like to do instead?
Screentime seems to be a popular topic these days.
I have to admit we aren’t super stringent in our house. The kids and I have “showtime” each day. It’s usually late in the afternoon (2 or 3) after we’ve played (inside and out), read, eaten, and exercised for the day.. I let them watch until Daddy comes home (5 or 6) while I dinner prep, clean, relax, or work on the podcast.
Maybe that’s horrible. #confessionsession
But I’m proud to say I’ve converted them to Winnie the Pooh. One of my childhood favorites.
I did buy a couple of card games to play with Joe this week: Monopoly Deal and Skyjo. My mom and I love them – wish me luck that my hubby does, too 😂.
I also set my social media timers for 30 minutes between Facebook and Instagram this week. It’s been nice to be a little bit more present.
Do you feel strongly about screentime? What do you like to do instead?
Any ideas of other things I can do with the kids? They love to build legos, bake, play on the car rug, hold dance parties, and run around outside, but there are quite a few hours in the day when it starts at 7:30AM 🤣.
