Set Time for Screen Time

Set Time for Screen Time

Did you know that the blue light emanating from digital devices, can penetrate young eyes and may cause retinal damage? 




This is because children’s eyes develop gradually, and they lack a certain filter that protects their eyes. Adults have protective pigments in their eyes that help prevent blue light exposure. Talk to your local eye care specialist about filtered lenses.  These filter out blue light and provide protection for children's eyes. It is important to 'set time for screen time' for our young ones.

Some Alternative Ideas That Kids Will Find Fun:

  • Reading a book.

My Visit With The Super Talented Susanne Gervay
I love spending time with creative and interesting peeps.
Today was an extra special day when I visited with the super talented, Susanne Gervay, author of the amazing “I Am Jack” series and some.
The time went by very fast. It wasn't at all surprising to find out that we have a lot in common. 
We both started our creative writing when we were very, very young.  I say, once a creative being, always a creative being.

The BIGGEST Plants On Our Planet.

Trees provide nectar and pollen for our bees,
and some of the oxygen we breathe comes from trees.
Urban trees and forests save one life every year,
Absorbing harmful carbon from the atmosphere.
Trees help clean the air that we breathe,
