Some time ago I’ve written about Moms who are using their phone for all day long. (You can find it here Mommy please look at me, not your phone!). So when I was asked for reviewing a book ‘My toddler life’ which is talking about the similar problem, I was really happy.
Does your toddler love to play with your phone?
I think most of you will say yes. But did you think for a minute ‘why?’ If not you definitely need to get that book. It’s not a big surprise if your baby sees you every day with your smartphone that he wants to play with it. The same was with a toddler and his mom from Corine’s book. When Mommy finds him using her phone without permission, it’s the perfect teaching moment. Mommy reminds her little one that what matters most in life is time together filled with love and attention.
It’s not an only good story for kids but obviously for all parents. There is a little simple reminder: ‘Put down our phones’. Cherish those moments that most important in your life. Do not show to your baby that your phone is in the first place.
I really like that book. I like the idea that is addressed to adults as well. Plus my son likes it. He is smiling at that little boy every time we read it:)
