SO, today, while J’s having his long nap, I am keen to talk about screen times. One of the feminist issue which has become our childhood and motherhood new enemy.
I have teamed up with KidloLand; Educational App For Toddlers and Pre-schoolers.
First, what is screen time? Screen time is the time you spend watching TV or DVDs, using computers, playing video or hand-held computer games, or using tablets or smartphones.
Screen time can be:
- interactive – for example laying video games, online tools to draw pictures, communicating via Skype or Facetime.
- not interactive – for example, sitting still and watching movies, TV programs or YouTube videos
- educational – for example, doing maths homework online
- recreational – for example, playing games or watching videos for fun.
I understand that screen time had become an enemy to our childhood and motherhood. But, let us be honest, screen times do make mothers’ lives easier. As mothers, we’re supposed to embrace—or at least nobly suffer through—all the challenges that parenting throws at us. We’re supposed to accept having little people at our heels while we’re trying to buy the groceries, make dinner, or go to the bathroom. We’re supposed to accept the exhaustion that comes from working a full day at the office and a second shift at home before falling into bed for an inevitably interrupted sleep. We’re supposed to accept the isolation that comes from raising children in a world that regards a crying child as a crime against restaurant patrons or airplane travellers.
The mother who hands her child a smartphone is taking the easy way out of these challenges. But since so much of parenting consists of situations in which there is no easy way out, I’m deeply grateful when somebody offers me a cheat. And I mean a healthy cheat – it helps you to get things done without killing your rights to feel good about yourself. It gives you hope to get through the next hour.
A healthy screen time lifestyle means screen times limits for your child.
What is screen time limits?
Screen time limits are about making sure your child enjoys lots of healthy, fun activities – both with and without screens. Limits mean looking at the time your child spends on screens and making sure that the screen contents are balanced; interactive, not-interactive, educational, and recreational.
As J’s getting older, I become more selective on choosing the apps he could play on my smartphone/IPad. And I was so happy when KidloLand reached out to me recently, offering 3-months free subscription to their app for toddlers & preschoolers, and write a review as the return. We have tried the app for sometimes and I am proudly categorised this app as a HEALTHY APP. It covers 4 elements of the screen contents (interactive, not-interactive, educational, recreational).
Here’s the answer for a Healthy Screen Application (IPhone, IPad, Android)
KidloLand has so many range of activities from nursery rhymes videos, drawing tools, to tracing letter guides. Yes, you get ALL of them in just one app. How cool is that! ONE HEALTHY STOP FOR ALL. It is hard for me to not love KidloLand. And here’s my honest experience with KidloLand.
J was quite eloquent with shapes, colors, and letters since he was 18 months. But never put any interests on writing. After using KidloLand for the past few weeks, he improves his interests & skills in writing the letter massively by playing with the “learn to trace”. KidloLand provides such a fun and creative way to teach this pre-schooler about writing step by step. And what’s more good about it is it is mess-free. You could simply write and delete it on screen.
The other activities we love the most is the vehicle games. J loves moving vehicles and kinda obsessed with them. So, he loves playing this game; which help him learn about following instructions.
Once again, thank you so much KidloLand for inventing a healthy screen contents and experiences. I highly recommend this app for kids and parents. It is a safe app, recommended by 400+ mom bloggers.
Remember, that screen time limit does not mean stopping your kid from watching the screens or playing with their video games. It is about creating a healthy balanced lifestyle for them to follow.
