My kids love their screen time (video games for my son and Netflix for my daughter). In fact, they love it so much that we’ve limited screen time to weekends only in order to get better focus on school work during the week (it works wonders.) Every once in a while, my husband will say (in his best, fake old-man voice), “Back in my day, we played outside. With dirt. And we liked it!” This always gets a chuckle out of the kids – in part, because they know it’s true! The beautiful thing is, during the week, when screen time is not an option my kids are far more likely to read a book for pleasure, write a story, draw, paint or play outside. This article gives some great suggestions for other screen time alternatives.
