  1. Toddler & Child
    Most parents spend the majority of their time trying to get their kids off of screens. Now there is (gasp!) finally a reason to turn on the tube Hold on, though.. hear us out! When my son was around five years old, he began telling me about a vacuum that he thought we should buy. On a daily...
  2. Family Life
    I've been hooked on This Is Us from the very first episode, ever since the (spoilers!) plot twist in the first episode where we learned that the birth of Jack and Rebecca Pearson's triplets had taken place in 1979 and not in present day. The show follows the Pearson triplets - Kevin, Kate, and...
  3. Queer Parenting
    Hi everyone! I'm a Casting Producer with Magilla Entertainment, and we're currently casting an empowering, relatable, and most of all honest, docu-series for TLC all about how life changes in the first year of parenthood! We're looking for parents-to-be who are due this summer to early fall...
  4. Country Living / Off the Grid

  5. Family Life
    As a child born in the mid 70's, my generation has witnessed a pretty radical lifestyle shift due to technological advances. It is a transformation that will no doubt continue to insert itself further and further into our lives with the development of each new "must have" gadget. It begs the...
  6. Life with a Toddler
    I know it isn't good for them, but I admit that when I was getting dinner together, I'd put a toddler in front of a Baby Einstein video - not because I thought it would make them smarter but because it would keep them quiet while I was working, and I wasn't prepared to baby wear around knives...
  7. Life with a Toddler
    My babe is 4 months, but I'm thinking ahead. I have noticed a lot of threads in Toddlers about 2-3 year-olds and phases involving constant meltdowns (duh), many mentioning battles over TV. A few have said their issues went away or significantly diminished once they got rid of TV/videos. Now...
  8. Parenting
    We have started limiting screen time more and more. I can't quite figure out why, but when DD1 (6) gets a lot of screen time (either TV or iPad) her behavior takes a huge dive. She get's cranky and irritable, doesn't listen as well, and also refuses to do anything BUT screen time. In our own...
  9. Life with a Toddler
    We were completely media-free with our son (except radio/music) until he was 2.5, after which we bought a bunch of 11 minute "Franklin" (the animated turtle) episodes. We watch a couple a day with him. DH got a Netflix subscription last night, but even "G" rated stuff had violence. We do not...
  10. Parenting
    Has anyone noticed a correlation between screen time and tantrums? (violent outburst is probably a little extreme... but I'm talking about my 7 year old, so its not just a tantrum, yanno?). I thought it was just holidays -- lack of sleep, excitement, crap food, etc... but easter was sunday...
