If you loved YouTube before, as a parent, you will begin to worship it! We have all been there. Cute and peppy nursery rhymes videos help to keep the kiddo engaged while we force feed him the kichdi and porridge! YouTube videos help to distract or even calm down a crying toddler! And there is nothing to feel guilty about it!
You have to maintain your sanity while ensuring that your baby eats his six meals a day. It is not easy. And any pediatrician or scientist who says no screen time for kids should try feeding a toddler once! He will surely be singing a different tune soon!
Some YouTube Channels are so good that they become virtual babysitters. As a parent, it is essential to remember that screen time is not good for a child’s developing brain. So use with discretion. Try to limit on daily basis as much as you can, while maintaining your sanity as well.
If you are looking for some ballpark figures then here you go:
Babies and toddlers below 2 years should have zero screen time. A hour for kiddos between 2-5 years and not more than 2 hours for children 5 years and above.
Be sure to take these recommendations with a pinch of salt. Trust your instincts. Only you know how many chores are left to be done!
