24 - How TV is Affecting Your Child's Behavior and What the Hell You Can Do About it with Jerrica Sannes, Early Childhood Development Expert and Owner of Raise Wildflowers
Play • 1 hr 23 min

We know screen time is "bad" - but what is really going on here?   Mom of two and early childhood development expert, Jerrica Sannes, was in the same boat as most parents when it came to screen time with her oldest.  She knew it wasn't "good", but damn it... she had stuff she had to get done and it kept him occupied!  It wasn't until she started to correlate many of his outbursts and negative behaviors with the messages he received from the programs he was watching until she fully understood and appreciated the true harm done to our children (and us!) from some television programs.

Join us as we dive into the "WHY" behind how television is affecting our kiddos, what programs offer a better alternative, how to identify and avoid programs that overstimulate our kids and how to create an environment for independent play so you mamas can actually get things done!!  The best thing about this topic is that we dive into what TO DO.  Jerrica provides tools and tips for how to navigate the sticky topic of screen time - WITHOUT telling you: "Well, screen time is bad, don't give your kid screen time."   She uses screens and TV in her home and provides guidance for how we can use these tools without allowing them to manipulate our children and without letting them wreak chaos on our lives!
