Screentime during quarantine

    My boys are 7 and almost 5. They get screen time in the morning from when they wake up until we start school time at 9. Yes, school work is on screens but it's educational! And then it's nothing until 1 hour at 3 if they've done their chores and other things. Then maybe a little before dinner. There are other random school zoom calls during the week. Friday night is always family movie night. And weekends are dependent on the family and the weather. We have to try to limit it as DS1 gets migraines and screen time is his main trigger. We got those blue light glasses and hopefully that helps.

    Totally depends on the day. We have had some absolutely awful weather recently and they get a lot more those days. I’m pregnant and struggling with insomnia and low iron so the other day I just let them sit and watch kids YouTube for 2 hours while I slept. If it’s nice out they spend lots of time outside. I’d say they’re averaging 2-4 hours per day (not counting educational screen time).

    Daniel Tiger has been working great - thank you guys! I'm sure we'll need to try some of the other recommendations too as this goes on indefinitely...
