Do You Limit Screen Time for Your Kids?
A Hudson Valley mom needs some direction with screen time and her kids, got any advice?
Every Wednesday on the Wakin' Up with CJ and Jess Show we turn our radio show into a therapist's office to help out a fellow Wolf listener with an issue they're dealing with, we call it "We Gotcha Wednesday".
Over the course of a week we get emails from all kinds of people, some yelling at us, others asking us to promote something that's going on in the Hudson Valley and our favorites, emails from fellow Wolf listeners looking for some advice.
So once a week we open up our email and pick one to try and help out. This weeks issue comes from a mom in the area that is getting ready to go back to work and is having a problem with screen time on electronics with her 3 kids. She wrote us....
"I'm getting ready to go back to work next week like a lot of moms and I'm having a problem with my mom. She has agreed to watch my three kids when I go back but she's now telling me the kids need a limit on screen time on their electronics. Normally, I would agree with her, but because of the Coronavirus, and the fact that they can't see their friends and are stressed, I have no problem with them watching TV, playing video games and talking on their phones. It's a nice distraction from the stressful time we are experiencing. She disagrees and says I'm too lenient. I need some help from other parents. Am I a bad parent?"
We say it all the time, you guys give great advice, so can you help out this mom? Screen time limits or no? Call or text us through the Wolf app.
