I know the whole limited screen time for kids, and that it does include laptops, Ipads and such, and we DO try to do that for our kids.
But reality is....those things are here to stay. So we might as well learn to live WITH them right?
Thats what one guy in Idaho has done...and has also made it so the kids can learn and be entertained too when on the Ipad. He invented Smart Pjs.
I'll post the whole story here in a sec, but really, when I think about it....its a great idea. Its not going to cut out parent time ( when used right!) but it will also make sure that the kids time in front of the Ipad or phone screen is GOOD time...not just angry bird time! I am hoping that this takes off and succeeds!
Smart PJs. They're certainly clever: Each of the jammies' 47 unique dot patterns triggers a story or an animal lesson when the kid scans it with a smartphone or tablet. But I am wary of products that may outsource crucial parental tasks to machines. So I spoke with the inventor.
