I am pretty relaxed when it comes to screen time. I limit it during the week, but if we are not doing anything of a weekend, I don’t tend to limit it. Some may agree, some may disagree. Its a very ordinary moment in our house for Henry to either be on his X-Box, his Nintendo Switch or on his tablet.
Henry has shown interest in gaming for quite a few years. I was surprised at how quickly he picked it up. He has a few favourite games he will always play. He will play online with school friends and family, and I kind of like listening to the conversations he has with them. It still very much shows his age. I am constantly checking in and removing any unwanted guests. Obviously as a parent, I am constantly checking his account for his own safety.
It’s become quite a big part of his hobby and if its something they enjoy then I’m happy to let him play. Don’t get me wrong, he will have times where he is banned, and will not be allowed any screen time whatsoever. But generally he is a pretty well behaved boy. If he is banned he knows he has done something that resulted in the ban in the first place.
Do you limit screen time? How do you fit it in? I am intrigued to know how other parents deal with gamers and if they are limited to play?
I would love it if you joined me and the fellow bloggers who link up. I’m looking forward to joining in weekly and hopefully find lots of new blogs to read along the way!
