Love this, very insightful! I bought Simplicity Parenting a while ago now but haven't made the time to read it yet, this has motivated me to pull it off the shelf! Hope you're having a lovely trip x
Has anyone got any tips on how to have a balance, where TV/Computers can work as part of a rounded experience? Not a dependancy?Anything my daughter watches is age appropriate and no advertising, I think there can be some benefits, but children so quickly get 'addicted' to it.Do you think it's all or nothing?Sorry for anon, don't have a sign up at the moment,Sally xWe've had TV free periods, and
My children are TV free 98 % of the time. On a weekend they might watch a family film, routine can help so they're not begging for tv at random times at home.
PLEASE read Kim John Payne's book! He has most of the answers for everyone. I attended his workshop - awesome and very down-to earth, not only about TV, media etc. - but on many other challenges of parenting. (most of mine have disappeared! :-)
