How do you manage the kids time on devices? For me, its a love/hate relationship. I love the ipads because it keeps them quiet, and lets me get some work done. But there are a whole variety of reasons why too much is NOT a good thing for my two.
Lately, I'd been saying "yes" a bit too often, and the devices have started to take over - hours and hours of staring at screens. And then the daily requests (sometimes hourly with Master 9!) to have them again, it almost becomes an obsession and just about all they think about.
So this last month, we've pulled back. They've gone whole weeks AND sometimes whole weekends without them, or very limited time on them. Yes we get some moaning, but after the initial half hour of being bored and grumpy, suddenly they find stuff to do. They've created LEGO towns, spent hours on the trampoline having fun together, done some cool drawings or read a book, or baked some brownies. Last weekend they came to me with some old mismatched socks and googly eyes, asking if they could make sock puppets!
So my goal is to continue to say "no" more often, and encourage their imaginations to go wild.
What do you do, to manage the kids time on their devices?
This week's blog post features adorable baby girl Lyrik! Lyrik's beautiful mum Hailey loves florals, so Lyrik wore one of my cute little lace floral rompers. It was lovely to capture some gorgeous sibling images with big sister Islah too, both girls were amazing and did everything I asked, and more!
Thank you so much Hailey and Cameron, I loved meeting your gorgeous family and capturing these memories for you!
Here are some favourites from the session:
