The only "screen time" my 2 year old son has had until now has been video calls, and looking at his own photos and videos with a parent on their phone.
We do not plan to use screen time as a break from parenting, or to distract him. We'll sit with him and talk about what we're seeing. It'll be another activity to do with him.
What do we start with? I'd love to watch some short animation movies with him like Pixar's, but is it age appropriate? I find YouTube videos specifically aimed at kids very annoying, but perhaps they're what appeal most to toddlers due to repetition and such?
How do we make sure we're not opening some flood gates? We're aiming at slowly building up to 1 hour per day, but will my son understand the time limit? How do we handle requests (or melt downs) for more screen time every time we watch something?
