If you ever see a Tweet from Bethenny Frankel that says “FHGTW,” don’t worry, it’s not the Skinny Girl Margarita talking. Like most of us moms out there, Bethenny sometimes hands over her trusty phone to her 2-year-old daughter Bryn to play with as a distraction if they are somewhere out and about and mom just happens to be a little pre-occupied with something else.
For example, this is what Bethenny’s timeline looked like this weekend:
I’m sure most of us can relate, right? Are you also one of those moms that lets their kids play with their iPhones and iPads when you have something important going on or have an important call coming up and you don’t want the kids screaming in the background? I’m raising my hand and admitting to this too, as sometimes I feel I have no other choice but to let my 4-year-old play Doughnut Maker or Angry Birds while I’m trying to put my 2-year-old to sleep and need a little quiet time in the house.
Tell us, how often do you let your children play with your electronic devices and what are some limitations you set with your kids?
