My Sunday Photo

My Sunday photo for this photo speaks a thousand words and makes me feel a thousand emotions. My kids lately have been getting a little too much screen time {my bad!} and I had a post go live this morning giving out a few tips how to reduce screen time at home if you need a few ideas.

That’s been our week! Reducing the screen time, whether it be a phone, TV, console or tablet and I have been encouraging the children to get outside before the snow comes and to give their imaginations the chance to take the reins for a while. To go wild, to be kids and not a¬†slave to a screen.
my sunday photoThis was captured at the start of the week. I let the toddler have a little screen time during the ‘getting the older kids sorted for school’ madness…and after that {and a little tantrum} I found her playing in her room no less, with her dolls house. I cannot tell you the emotions I felt. I literally crept in and sat on her bed just watching her. I didn’t care that her bedroom was an absolute tip {because let’s face it, she shares it with a 10yr old girl going on 18!} and I just let myself be consumed in her pretend play.

Have you ever considered having a no screen day?

    Cool photo capturing imaginative play at it’s best. Screen time is a difficult one but a little every now and then can work wonders for everyone! #mysundayphoto

    Debs, good for you and for her. Isn’t it nice when they show you that they are listening? And your reinforcement is actually getting through!!! Great job!
