Screens Go Ask Your Mother

    • Podcasts

Are screens our make-do babysitters? Some parents are blamed for giving their children too much, while others - including Bill Gates - insist on raising their kids “screen-free”. Let’s face it, screens can be a helpful distraction, for those long car journeys or even when Mum just needs five minutes, but we all know too much isn’t good. In this episode Vanel and Sindy get some expert advice on how to navigate screen time, not just the kids’ but theirs too. They also discuss the right age to give your child a phone and whether kids should actually be offline and outside, away from those addictive devices.
