I feel like the only topic I hear parents talk about these days is “screen time.” I can’t seem to escape it for some reason.
Limiting screen time, extending screen time, it never ends!
In the spirit of SCREEN TIME, let’s look at these funny tweets…
Pediatrician: They're only getting two hours of screen time a day, right?
Me: HAHAHAHA! I mean, yes.

2. Not gonna happen, friends.
Sure, I could parent without screen time. I could also churn my own butter, but let's not get crazy here.

3. Don’t bother me anymore.
Me, to all my kids before the age of 2.
"No screens allowed."
On their 2nd birthday, handing over iPad.
"This is your mother now."

4. Great job.
School: We're hosting a book fair to encourage more reading/less screen time
Me: What book did you pick?
7: Super Mario Skill Book

5. Can’t get away from it.
My kids made cardboard computers: I'm glad they're so imaginative and equally disturbed that even their creative play involves screen time.

6. Changed pretty quickly on that one.
Me: No screen time. Three is too young.
Me on an airplane: More. Plug him in. Yes hi flight attendant, do these seats come with a Matrix neck-jack

7. You’re lying!
Took my son to the eye doctor & was asked “how much screen time do you allow?”
Liar level: EXPERT

8. A different kind of screen.
I am trying to limit my kids' screen time, which is why today we're going to a movie.

9. Cat enforcer.
The cat keeps stepping on the surge protector switch and shutting off the television.
My cat is better at enforcing screen time limits than I am.

10. Don’t torture yourself.
You don't let your kids have screen time? That's cool. Tell me some other ways you enjoy punishing yourself.

11. The choice is yours.
I can give Holden screen time and listen to Caillou whining. Or I can say no screen time and listen to Holden whining. #parenting

12. Didn’t even bother looking.
“No iPad. You guys have had plenty of screen time today!” she shouts, without looking up from her phone.

13. A serious threat.
"Well, if you don't, I'll take away your screen time."
– my family motto

14. Definitely the better option.
Spend a few weeks with your kids making and distributing slime all over your house and you'll think, "screen time isn't so bad."

15. That’s why she’s doing it…
Yeah, I could restrict my kids' screen time, sure, but I just don't want to be the kind of parent who *limits* her children, ya know? Right, yeah, I want them to feel limitless, that's all…
