Vee, Jae and El are generally occupied with structured and free choice screen-free activities throughout the day and have very little screen time.
However these few days, Jae (7y10m) has been on my laptop at 7+ am for 1 hour to set test papers! 😅
Previously, he has been copying or making up questions for his siblings to do. Then finally he asked to borrow my laptop for typing. Since it’s a productive (rather than consumptive) use, I’m happy to do so.
I set up a user account with these parental controls:
- applications and websites that he can access
- maximum usage duration (1 hour per day for now)
- access time periods (e.g. 7 am – 8 pm. Otherwise this early bird would wake up at 6+ am to work!)
Happy producing with tech!
