I have heard it said, on more than one occasion, that the impression people have of (radical) unschoolers is inaccurate. While our children have no limits on screen time/electronics, they don't spend the majority of their time on them.
I can't speak for anyone else, but in our house, electronics do hold a very prominent place in our daily life. Yes. It's true. Princess spends the majority of her time on one device or another.
We don't have separate rules for kids and adults in our house. And so, the Lizard King and I don't have limits on our "screen time" and neither does Princess. We each decide when and how we use our screens/electronics. I have to admit, we all spend a lot of time with some sort of screen.
While there are many times that Princess will turn off the *insert device here* and play or help in the kitchen or . . . , there are definitely more times she is working on at least one device, often more than one. She is big on multi-tasking. Not all of our time is at home. We are often in the car or at Village Home or running errands. And while devices are portable, devices aren't used during classes. She loves her classes too much to even think of pulling out something electronic.
To be honest, I do wonder sometimes if it's too much. This is one of my recent struggles. This is one of the things that has had me questioning things...worrying about things. The thing is, I really believe that there is value in everything Princess does. Yes, even and maybe especially her "devices", as she calls them.
I've been known to say that everything is educational. It's time to put my money where my mouth is. I think I have some exploration ahead of me. And now, I think it's time for me to get off the computer and go watch some TV. ;)
