So many mothers are wondering about how to manage screen time. It’s true, it’s a modern day issue that has left us confused, worried and even feeling guilty as we grapple our way through not knowing if we’re doing the right or wrong things.
“how much screen-time time should my child be having?” “Does it depend on their age?”
“how do I manage it?” “How do I get them OF IT and get all the other important things done?”
“I don’t want them to miss out. how can I help them be smarter AND still be an intuitive connected mother”?
One thing is for sure- screens are here to stay. Like many things in motherhood, it’s just another tool, and it’s more about HOW we use it than IF we use it (sigh, I hear you!!!!)
Only in recent months, we had some NEW research –based guidelines (https://www.aap.org/en-us/about-the-aap/aap-press-room/pages/american-academy-of-pediatrics-announces-new-recommendations-for-childrens-media-use.aspx) from the American Academy of Pediatrics (APP). This is helpful. It gives us some basic guidance from which we can base our intuitive mother decisions on.
So, I got to diving deep and fusing mamahood wisdom with the research. This is always the best and most delicious way … to take facts and make them real…. So they suit your individual mama approach and your child’s unique needs. Ahhhh, take the pressure off. Make it real!
