Like any "good" parent I try to limit screen time to an hour and a half per day. This can be hard in a house full of devices and a husband who works on the computer for a living. There are days I really battle with my kids and yes there are days when they win. Some days the snow and rain just plain beat me with their gloomy coldness! In the event we're cooped up inside or just need a little down time we enjoy using our ipad for reading a good book and the computer to catch up on a little game time. My 3rd grader especially loves to play video games to practice math facts.
