It’s time for your children to visit the pediatrician for a check-up! You gather your three anxious, jumping jelly beans into the minivan and start your journey to the doctor’s office. “I don’t want to get a shot!” “Mommy, are we almost there yet?” “Susie won’t stop poking me, Mom!” You finally arrive and they say it is going to be about a 20 minute wait. Oh, great. The easiest thing to do right now would be to stick an Ipad in front of your children’s faces and you know they will be occupied playing games until the doctor is ready to see them. But do you really want to resort to that? It is great that we have made such vast advances in technology and we have these amazing devices that have the ability to entertain for hours, but for children, this should be a regulated reward. It is not a bad idea to teach your children to spend their time doing other things to pass the time rather than relying on electronics.
