Screen Time
« on: Aug 19, 2014 @ 10:04 AM »
How much screen time does everyone allow their kids to have? Our oldest gets her LeapPad Ultra for a little over an hour each night. Just curious how other people handle that. I use the Guided Access feature on iPhone to lock it down and let her play some of her games at times as well.

I recently cut off my cable but allow my kids to go on the computer without a set time limit.  They aren't interested in staying inside and online all day but maybe I'll have a different experience in the winter. 

My oldest child has a kindle fire which through their freetime app, I can set a goals that she has to achieve before games and web are available.  Her kindle is set to unlock itself after she's reads ebooks for 30 minutes.

That's pretty slick. I didn't know the Kindle had that feature. We limit the 3 1/2 year old to educational games. It's only a matter of time before she figures out what else is out there, lol. The 2 year old is just now starting to care.
