Every Saturday I bring you a parenting mistake my husband and I have made. Please have a laugh or cry at our expense — we really are good parents, I swear.
Nora doesn’t get much screen time. We don’t own a television, so besides an occasional episode of Dora at the neighbors, her media exposure is limited to the images on her friends’ diapers and some educational apps on my iPhone.
The other day, I gave Nora my phone so she could play a shape game. Problem was, she was using it standing in the kitchen. On ceramic tile. And she’s two. So she dropped it. On ceramic tile.
I snatched up the beloved device and was greeted with a message telling me I had no sim card. Gasp. All was well again after a restart, but a new rule was made that day. Toddlers must be well rested, in a good mood, have clean, dry hands and be securely seated on a piece of soft furniture while using the iPhone. And wear a wrist tether.
