Screen time is one of those polarizing debates in the parenting world and everyone seems to have a pretty strong opinion. I’ll be honest, at first I was completely against screen time, but I’ve come to really appreciate it’s benefits. It’s a great way to help your kids learn new things in a fun and exciting ways while giving you a few minutes to get stuff done.
One of the best places to find great (and free) educational videos is YouTube. There are so many YouTube channels out there that can help preschoolers learn letters, numbers, and learn about the world around them. And with all of us spending a lot more time at home due to social distancing these YouTube channels for preschoolers are also a great way for you to get some much needed quiet time without the guilt!
