30 Ways To Make The Most Of Screen Time






Hey hey,

Happy hump day! Sun is shining and after an insanely busy day yesterday I took today as a PJ catch up on laundry day. Our cleaner comes tomorrow so I like to make sure and finish all the laundry and wash sheets before she comes. It's by far one of my fave days, lol! I also took today to complete another post that you guys have been asking for. PS This podcast for kids round ups was one of the most visited posts I have ever published.

There is a dark cloud set over screen time and electronics. Mainly because misused it can really hinder a child from DEVELOPMENT, LIVING & LEARNING. but the truth is it's 2019 and electronics are a part of life and they can be a life saver for those of us that work from home, for traveling or simply to give the grownups a break. We limit it during the week so that we don't feel guilty during the weekends. And I thought I'd share our list of go-to's that make the most of kid's screen time.
