I love one on one time with India, nothing beats spending time with your family, especially at India’s age, but when I need to do something around the house or change a stinky Wolfie nappy, it can be difficult to keep India entertained (Thank goodness for big girl school).
On holiday last month, I learnt about Reading Eggs, which is an app that is a game but also learning tool for kids aged 2 - 12, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting India to like it but she does and now I get daily requests to have Max’s iPad!! Reading Eggs makes learning to read fun and engaging, using a variety of games and activities. I always used to get parent guilt about the amount of time India wanted on the iPad, especially over lockdown but this app actually is something productive, which India actually gets really excited about, and I can really see her learning.
India hounds us to use the app daily now, so we’ve limited it to 30-40 minutes a day, which means that I know India is safe, happy and learning, I can get a bit of time to myself without feeling guilty, weather it means a quick workout, some time with Wolfie or do a bit of cooking without having to juggle too much. On holiday this app was a life-saver, especially at dinner time, when we were eating out.
