I don’t want him to get into his head that he can grab my phone or tablet and play/watch/etc. media anywhere. There will be a time when that changes, but I’m just trying to put in any boundaries that I can XD I totally understand and also appreciate your understanding my way. Our kids range from about his age to almost 7 so the dynamic is a little different. Our TVs are in our finished basement and our kitchen. Our main living room has books and games and we have a projector and homemade screen that we occasionally set up in one of our TV free rooms or once in a great while our bedroom for special movie-theatre style occasions. Their bedrooms are for reading and resting. In our other house, the only places able to take a TV were the main rooms, the basement, and the bedrooms. I’m glad to not have a TV in those rooms anymore. Almost all of our kids’ tablet time is school related, and the school tablets went back last week. Also thankfully. So now it’s the laptops (mine, which hosts their private Minecraft server, is passworded so that let’s me be the gatekeeper there) or the TVs with consoles. Which I can currently switch to some random input and prevent them from playing. My ears perked at Mr’s line of work. 1 Quote Adventurer, Half-Dwarf Chaotic-Good Paladin Ne me dites jamais les chances! ¡Nunca me digas las probabilidades!
