Should meal time be screen free?
I recently read an interesting article on whether or not meal time should be screen free. I must be honest and say that sometimes i DO let the children eat in front of the television in the living room... ok bad mom moment over... but seriously the article has some great points about making dinner time family time. That is a great point...we love our family meals ...but sometimes succumb to a meal before the "idiot box" as my grandfather used to call the television.
One great thing I learned from this article is that screen time interferes with normal healthy sleeping patterns... i had known this but forgotten this...definitely something to remember when turning on the television!
