Making a Preschooler Schedule
Okay, so I’ve been living tech free for a full 5 days.I’ve been getting up earlier (as in 4am) to
get my computer work done.I’m Facebook
free during the day but sometimes feeling too tired to really engage.Patience grasshopper!This is a new habit and will take some time
to really get the hang of it.You would
think it would be easier.
Now that I have all this free time, today I tackle my daughter’s
schedule.I want her to live in a tech
free world as well.We’re pretty good
about no video games, we limit her television time, but it needs to be limited
even more.I can’t take her SpongeBobSquare Pants away without replacing it with something. Maybe I'll replace it with this. I’ve been toying with a new schedule for
her.One with an emphasis on quality
time, time to create, time for imagination, time for friends.
My girl filled with imagination, not television.
