Screen time and technology use. Have parents ever agonised over anything more?

From the time they’re toddlers, our children are charmed by Peppa Pig, Fireman Sam and their cohort. A few episodes of something simple can be a welcome respite for parents, and a source of engaging fun, interest and even education for little ones.

But, as they grow older, the territory becomes more fraught. We hear about eight-year-olds watching pornography, eleven-year-olds taking their Fortnite battles to real-life playgrounds, and kids in high school being harassed by their peers and spending upwards of 20 hours a week curating their social media profiles.

So what can we do? Read the blog here: https://parenttv.com/blog/is-screen-time-making-you-mental/

“It’s not fair! I never get to do anything and you get to do whatever you want!”

My 11 year old stormed off into his room, slammed the door, continuing to fume and rage for a good while after.

I let him go. I could feel the heat of anger burning me up but I stayed put and took some deep breaths to calm myself.

These are big steps for me as a parent. A couple of years ago I would have gone after him. I would have rattled off exactly all the things he gets to do. In fact, I would have let him know every sacrifice I’ve ever made for him since the day of his conception. He had really hit a raw nerve.

Thank goodness that was the old me.

This weeks’ highlights include:

It can be incredibly difficult for parents to see their kids struggle with anything, even when it is their own emotions. However, it is important for parents to step back and let their children learn how to deal with life’s uncomfortable feelings. Rescuing them or sheltering them from things that cause upset may seem like the right thing to do to protect them. However, in the long run these actions can stunt a child’s ability to regulate their own emotions, which is an integral life skill. Find out why it is important to let your kids feel uncomfortable feelings!
