For past 3 months, we have successfully implemented the “no gadget (on bed) rule”. This does not only applies to Liam but to me and Dino as well. hehehe. We are trying to minimize Liam’s tablet usage and noticed that he’s ok not to use his tablets as long as we play with him. I realized that it’s not really the gadget, it’s our lack of time din and attention at night that causes him to watch and play on his tablet.
Don’t get me wrong, we do play with him naman, pero we allowed him to play gadgets kasi at night before we go to sleep. Liam is a good boy naman na when it’s time to sleep he will cooperate and turn off his tablet. But there were also episodes that he wants to watch his videos until he falls asleep.
With all the studies on effects of gadgets in kids nowadays, we really decided to limit his usage. Though am not pro to zero gadgets. I believe that parents still should control what they are watching (on tv or tablet) and playing. It’s due to his tablet that he learned ABC, 123, colors, talking and singing as well. So, I really won’t totally eliminate gadgets. Controlled lang dapat.
Anyway, here’s what we’ve been up to before our bedtime.
I just can’t find the photos, but we also played with marbles, stacking cups and a lot of other toys depending on Liam’s mood. T But the sweetest of all is when we turn the lights off and Liam would come to us for a goodnight kiss. Ang sweet no!?
Oh well, I think it’s doing us a lot of good naman as this is more bonding time for us. 🙂
