Love this. We keep screen time really firm as well, but I hesitate to state any black and white rules. There are some great gifts tech can give kids (and of course, a lot of distraction!). We take a similar approach. The kids don’t have iPads and certainly not phones, and I like to narrate what I’m doing if I use my phone or computer in front of them (for example, “I need to answer this message from Aunt Jenny to see if she needs us to watch your cousin this afternoon.”) And we love using my computer to call faraway family!
