Lately Sullivan has had a few fits just to show me where “terrible twos” came from. Most of the time, if it’s not something about eating, it’s an iPad power struggle ensuing. If I let him, he would watch it/play on it all day. I’ve never tested this theory, but I am curious 😊
I want to limit his screen time, keep him interested in “real” things (thankfully he loves books and playing with his other toys which involve exercising creativity), and reduce that need for instant gratification. What I’m wondering is how to best balance that with the fact that I am almost certain his education and likely his future career will be based on skills with technology…who knows?
What do you other toddler moms do? Ride the waves into the future or strictly keep it simple?
