Screen time & Toddlers

There are so many decisions we as parents make each and every day regarding our kids. While not all of those decisions are controversial, many decisions we make can leave parents divided.

One hot topic is how much screen time is too much? Before I was a parent I was of the mindset that “my child will watch TV/iPads when he or she is 10”. This just isn’t realistic in this day and age, screens and phones are everywhere.

Marley fell asleep watching her favorite, Bubble Guppies.

Therefore, we try to set realistic standards for our kids. Marley is 15 months and Kellan is 3 and they both love their “screen time”, this includes TV watching, iPads, playing on our phones and watching DVD’s in the car. We do our best to limit our kids to certain time periods and time frames that they can use these different devices.

I’ve been on the hunt for educational iPad apps that I could feel good about letting my kids play with and watch. Enter KidloLand , this application has been a lifesaver for me! It’s full of educational games, stories, songs, puzzles, and so much more! Kellan is obsessed with trucks and cars and there are tons of games that are great for his age. I was so surprised at how quickly he picked up on the games, his favorite game involves playing the role of a fireman and helping put out fires.


Not only has Kidloland been great for him, my daughter loves to dance and sing along with their nursery rhymes. There are endless choices for them, and I don’t have to have #momguilt as they play around on the iPad because they’re not just watching random videos but actually learning!

Now I may be in the market for another iPad! 😂

To download Kidloland app visit any of the following links:

  1. Eh, each family is going to do what works best for them, I suppose! We do watch a lot of Netflix around here, lol. As far as ipads/computers go, the only ones we use are abcya.com on the computer and kids learning apps on our tablet. It’s similar to the one you use and they love it! Enjoyed the post! 🙂

    1. Totally agree! I think each family is different and has to do what works for them. For us, some days we use screen time more than others. When we drove 4+ hours for a family vacation this summer we HEAVILY relied on screen time to keep them occupied.
