There is a difference between kids and adults using technology. Kids need to develop certain parts of their brain that adults have already developed. I need to run, but there's lots of information about the damaging effects if you look for it ☺
I don't ever sit on the lounge bored for an hour doing nothing...but man house chores are boring, some parts of my job are boring etc. If my kids tell me they're bored I don't turn the tv on or give them an ipad. I offer suggestions...if they turn them all down, then I tell them to find something or I'll delegate chores. Some of their favourite imaginative games were developed when they were bored.
And, as a bonus...they've learnt to be able to entertain themselves in boring situations when out.
Limited screen time and no screen time when out works for us. I'm not changing my stance on that. What you decide for your family is up to you ☺
