Creating scream-free, screen time...

Managing screen time with toddlers can be challenging, but there are strategies to make it more manageable. Here are some tips to help you maintain a scream-free environment while managing screen time:


Set Clear Expectations: Establish guidelines and boundaries for screen time. Communicate these rules with your child so they know what to expect.


Create a Family Media Plan: Develop a plan that outlines when and how screens will be used. Consider factors like duration, content, and specific times for screen-free activities.


Use Timers or Alarms: Set alarms or timers to indicate when it’s time to turn off screens. This helps create a predictable routine and reduces tantrums.



Designate Screen-Free Zones: Create areas in your home where screens are not allowed, such as during mealtimes or in bedrooms.


Encourage Unplugged Playtime: Balance screen time with unstructured playtime. Engage in activities that don’t involve screens to promote healthy development.


Be Realistic and Engaged: Start with attainable goals and engage with your child during screen time. Discuss what they see or do online to foster communication.


Remember, consistency and patience are key. By implementing these strategies, you can create a positive screen time experience for both you and your toddler!
