Screen Time Stats
by: Jae Curtis
When you've got a busy schedule, it's all too easy to plop your preschooler in front of Dora the Explorer. But according to the University of Michigan Health System, the average preschooler takes in about 32 hours of TV, videos and DVDs each week. While you might be tired, there are a few ways to spend some quality time with your preschooler without completely burning yourself out.
Skip the Carpool
Make Family Night Plans
Set a Timer
Plan a Special Day
Redefine Pillow Talk
Hey, a little after-preschool Dora isn’t going to hurt your child. In fact, it might save your sanity in the process. Just make sure that somewhere in your day, you take a minute to slow down and enjoy some quality time with your preschooler, because before long, she'll be off to kindergarten.
