This episode is tackling one of the hottest parenting topics, SCREEN TIME! Not only that, this specific conversation is geared for any working mom striving to handle screen time better with their kids. I'm excited to bring you my friend Andrea Davis, from Better Screen Time, where she and her husband teach positive strategies to help your family know when and how to make that transition without letting screen time take center stage.
“You want to serve the world and serve people…” At minute 1:35, Andrea tells us about her background and what her business journey has looked like.
“I have watched this evolution of the technology change…” At 8:12, I'm picking Andrea's brain about ideas of what our kids can be doing while we are working and how to keep them occupied without feeling guilty or disappointed with ourselves while trying to get work done. Plus, what kind of media we should be allowing our kids to watch.
“I realized that was a boundary I needed to set…” At minute 17:05, Andrea is sharing what she found while doing research and finding tips for the kids. Hear her recommendation for how much time she allows her kids to be watching screens and how we can judge what our kids need.
“Always invest in their relationship on a daily basis…” At 25:30, Andrea shares some ideas and tips that our kids can do independently. Plus a few ways we can prepare activities ahead of time, what Andrea does with her family and so many screen-free ideas we can implement!
