I will be the first to tell you, finding the correct balance is a lot of work. Way too many parents let electronics replace active parent time. I have one 5 year old grand daughter. Our grandaughter may get to use a phone for a minute or two while in the car.Otherwise it is real life. Taking care of the animals, doing homework( yes she had an hours worth of kinder garden homework. mostly requiring parent interaction( letter sounds and sight words). I just retired from education last week. One of administrations biggest concerns is use ( abuse) of electronics, student phones. Administration believes that teachers must "control" student phones. Take a walk past any classroom ( excluding shop and art) and you will see students on phones. I have two neighbor boys at age 13 that do not have phones. In both situations there is a phone provided for certain activities. but it isnt "their phone". Both boys will be eagle scouts at age 14. The one boys parents bought sheep and chickens and the boy has an animal baby-sitting and "egg" business. Believe me those parents are dumping more money and time into his business than it currently makes. The other boy is into soccer, maybe too much but that is one of the family sports. good parenting cant be substituted with electronics. My wife is 63, and very techie. Too much. We spend a lot of nights camping/ hunting./ ATVing in the back country. Unfortunately service is now provided too many places. the one place is 36 miles and not a single ranch home( 5 cabins) then 6 more miles and 4000 feet up and we still have service. In recent times our biggest relationship problem is her tech time.
