Modern parenting is demanding. Parents are becoming more desperate for downtime but are riddled with guilt as they switch on the TV for the kids to free up half an hour for making dinner. Media warns parents about the havoc that screen time can wreck upon our children and we end up feeling overwhelmed. We cannot deny the attraction children have for these screens, but we can find peace of mind knowing it’s possible for them to learn while they play.
