I have a 4 year old and we have deliberately not exposed him to screens very much at all. He does not know how phones or iPads work. He only started watching movies 3 weeks ago (we now do a family movie afternoon once per week). On average, he watches about 15 minutes per day and this started back in November. He is very articulate and communicates well with adults and children and is quite advanced for his age, verbally. The problem now is, well...you all know what the problem now is. I have meetings to attend and work to do. He refuses to do any independent play and I don't get even 5 minutes to myself all day. He is an only child.
My question is: what have parents in a similar situation been doing about screen time during Covid-19? I would love to hear how others' experiences of managing screen time during this stressful time.
