I know you probably hear it from every angle, but I may as well throw it out here too. I try and limit screen time to no more than an hour a day. Sometimes (like today as I was trying to set up for Kenzie’s birthday) it will be more. I had them watch a movie and a t.v. show. A lot of days there will be no t.v. at all. However, a general rule of an hour for our family has seemed to work well. If I am slow to get up, I’ll often spend 30 of my minutes on a morning show. I also love having them watch another 30 minute show while I’m getting dinner ready and dad is about to arrive home. It puts this quiet calm in our house before he walks in. It also gives me the opportunity to get a meal on the table. I try an choose shows that have some sort of value too – educational or moral. Some of the shows the girls enjoy are Super Why, Bernstein Bears, Bubble Guppies, Barney, and Umi Zoomi.
