To be honest, I’m more for screen time than my wife. I completely agree I watched WAY too much TV as a kid, BUT at the same time I spent hours playing outdoors with friends as TV characters we thought were “cool.”
ANNNNNND there are so many amazing learning apps on the iPad! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel, saying “Go on your iPad to learn today” is teaching. But I do feel using it as a tool while teaching with them, it’s like nothing we ever had access to…in a great way!
Man, I hope that all doesn’t come across as being a parent that just passes a device to our kids at a dinner table! :)
