**Set a Screen Time Limit:**
Establish a daily limit for screen use and stick to it. Consistency is key in creating healthy habits for your little one.
**Engage in Playful Activities:**
Encourage hands-on activities like drawing, puzzles, and outdoor play. Engaging alternatives promote creativity and physical development.
**Create Screen-Free Zones:**
Designate specific areas in your home, such as the dining table or playroom, where screens are not allowed. This helps establish boundaries.
**Be a Screen-Free Role Model:**
Children learn by observing. Limit your own screen time when around your toddler, demonstrating the importance of balance.
**Establish a Bedtime Routine:**
Avoid screens at least an hour before bedtime. Opt for calming activities like reading a book, fostering a peaceful environment for a good night's sleep.
Foster independent play with practice and open ended toys.
