What would you do if your children were addicted to their devices?
Mother of two, Kirstie Allsop, made the decision to destroy her sons iPads after they refused to stop playing Fortnite and PUBG.
“In June I smashed my kids’ iPads, not in a violent way. I actually banged them on the table leg” she told the stunned audience at Jeremy Vine’s TV show.
“We had made all sorts of rules and all sorts of times when we said you can’t play them and all those rules got broken and in the end I said, ‘Right that is it. I have to physically break them.” While we understand your frustration Kirstie, you could’ve just bought Ikydz.
But let’s face it, we’ve all been there. You could communicate with your children until you’re blue in the face, about the negative effects of excessive screen time or the dangers of being online and maybe even set some rules but, at the end of the day, they are children and they like their devices, way too much.
