When it comes to screen time? It’s a fight that almost all parents struggle with now.
On the one hand, sometimes you just want a little peace and quiet in the car or the grocery store. You are human, after all.
On the other hand, you can’t help but feel guilty for letting your child’s brain rot after Peppa Pig’s 100th hour of YouTube videos. #The fight is real. You’re not alone.

And much of the content (think stories, photos, and videos) in the app has been donated by third-party companies, including Skyship Entertainment, Bellwether Media, and National Geographic Young Explorer Magazine.
