Re: What are your time limit rules for Tablets and gaming systems?

We did the same thing with movies and now all she wants to watch are things like MythBusters and documentaries. She'd rather learn than be vegging out. She'll go through phases with it, but it's not common anymore. My boys are kind of following suit.
Thanks for the POV.

I never get to the library. We have on vehicle and DH uses it for school and work, so we rarely get to go anywhere when DH isn't home with us. My kids LOVE to read and DS1 is getting bored with the books we have.

DS2 likes to look at books on the iPad also.. We don't have an iPad, but the speech therapist does and frequently uses it in therapy for interactive books and activities. Both kids love it.

God bless!
