I am going crazy with my iPad. Wait. Let me re-phrase that: My kids are going CRAZY over the iPad! If I thought that it was bad before, I don’t know what it is about this summer vacation that has them going insane with this go-forsaken gadget! When I take away the iPad the next thing they ask for is my phone! I am 1 octave shy of screaming NO!!! Go out and play! Play with the darn toys that are just sitting there, collecting dust! And can you believe that they come back with ” I have nothing to do, then!”
Normally, I let the kids play with it 10 minutes at a time. That seemed to some what work out. In the past few weeks, the kids have been so obsessed with it, that it has reached the point that it’s the first thing they ask for in the morning. Then mid-morning, then after lunch, after snack and before dinner, after and then finally… before going to bed.
This is outrageous. There are 3 of them and only 1 iPad! All the bickering and fighting and L O U D discussion are for the mentado iPad. Well, I have had enough. I made up a schedule as to who and when gets the iPad.
Each kid gets one hour. Per day. That’s it. 60 minutes. No ifs ands or buts.
Just today, my daughter forfeited her hour by not going into the living room and playing there. She lost it… OH WELL! I am taking over their sanity as well as mine!
What do you do to pacify the fights over a single gadget?
