Homeroom Community Forum Discipline & Behavior Screen Time Reply To: Screen Time


We fall into too much screen time when our preschooler is sick. As soon as he’s well, it helps to get him outside, especially if we can get to a park or a forest preserve, away from our immediate yard. If the weather is inclement, maybe a fast food joint with an indoor play place, or a grocery store that has good samples.

Changing his environment seems to jolt him out of, “But this is ALWAYS the time of day when I watch a movie!” (when “always” really means “for the past 4 days while I ran fever” but time doesn’t have a lot of meaning to him right now)
