How a hands-on mom allows her kids to use gadgets
Maximize your children's screentime
I grew up surrounded by technology: my dad created his own software company on the year I was born (long before start-ups were popular), I had my own website before I turned 12 and spent hours chatting in a 3D-rendered community called Cybertown.
So when I had children of my own, it was challenging to keep them away from gadgets. I was so happy when the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) updated its guidelines on screentime for children! I missed the memo when it was released late last year but I had not been good at implementing the old no-gadgets-before-the-age-of-2 guideline anyway.
I consider myself a hands-on mom and agree with the new guidelines so I definitely curate their gadget experiences. Click Start Gallery to learn how you can maximize your children's screentime as well.
