Five Brain Boosting Alternatives To Screen Time

There’s no doubt about it, smartphones and tablets sure make life easier. Whether we’re plugging in GPS to take a road trip or asking Google for a recipe, they certainly come in handy.


However, when we reach for our devices, what example are we showing our kids? Studies suggest that too much interactive screen time can have a raft of negative effects on our children, causing disturbances in mood, memory, focus and social skills, among other ill effects.


It’s down to us as parents to lead by example and show our kids an alternative. So, here’s the challenge: how do you fill a whole vacation day with no screen time at all?


Take a walk outside


Kids can become lethargic if they spend too much time on the couch. It’s essential that we start the day right and encourage them outside. Need groceries? Leave the car in the garage and walk to the store!


What is the weather doing? Do we need to wear our rain boots? It doesn’t matter if you live in the city or in the countryside, a walk outside is an o…

ABOUT THE BOOK:Zoey the zebra is on a quest to find the best way to say good night. She asks different animals how they say good night, and in the end, she says good night with her zebra family in their own special way, and it feels just right! How Do You Say Good Night? is a fun story that encourages kids to celebrate differences.

My Review:
So how do you say goodnight?   In my family, we read our Bible and or Devotional book.  Then we say our family prayers.  After that, we have some secret handshake/kiss goodnight routines.   The kids like their special ways to say goodnight.  My kids are getting older but this book was super fun to read with them.  We truly enjoyed the board book with all the different animals and their own traditions and routines for bedtime!   I hope one of my readers will win this giveaway!   GOOD LUCK and be sure to enter!
