Allison Schaaf shares her experience with healthy screen time for her kids, and how to navigate this as they get older.

In episode 196, Allison Schaaf, founder of Prep Dish, chats about her experience with healthy screen time and how she navigates a nearly screen-free environment with her young kids.

One way Allison maintains a limited screen environment is that she and her husband do not have a TV in their home, which has helped eliminate the temptation to turn it on.  While Allison and her family do turn to the computer for occasional help answering her sons’ big questions about the world, or to say hello on FaceTime to far-away family and friends, Allison offers several other opportunities to entertain her two young boys: 

CD player 

TonieBox for stories and music 

Yoto Mini for audio while traveling 

Time outside 

Creative play 



Allison sees several benefits of this simplified, limited-screen environment for herself and her family, including that her children are very creative and use their imaginations to explore at home and outside. She also finds that it creates a somewhat quieter environment, which is helpful to her sensitivity to noise, though the usual kid sounds and music are ever present!  How do you determine healthy screen time rules at your house?
