Let me tell you a secret on how you can limit the screen time in your house despite the Spring break.
When I received the email that the school will close for two weeks, I think of an ideas that the little man will not insist of watching Disney Junior or play the Ipad the whole day.
When his break started we made an agreement that I can only allow him to watch or play the Ipad if he’ll do all these things first.
It’s not GUIDELINES it’s our HOUSE RULES…
1. Practice TELLING THE TIME.
2. READ at least ONE book
3. Answer the BRAIN QUEST Questionnaire
4. LEARN NEW THINGS
Today he learned singular and plural using our floor puzzle.
5. PRACTICE his MATH SKILLS
6. And lastly, ALWAYS HAVE TIME to PLAY with his SIBLINGS.
No compromises. No complaints. No Negotiation. Just do these things. And once those things were done, he could watch or play the Ipad for two hours in a day.
The List is simple, it’s short, and in an one week trial so far, it has shown promising results.😛
