You’d be hard-pressed to find a kid not glued to a device at the moment. Parents and experts agree that there’s far too much screen time for kids on a daily basis. So we speak to a psychologist about how to negotiate it out of their sticky little fingers, and put in place some boundaries.
Plus, are you disadvantaging your child if you don’t get them a tutor? And what’s the first thing you should do if you turn around and your toddler’s disappeared while you’re out and about?
The whole family was at a beach event in Bournemouth on the southern coast of England . It was very busy so Lucinda (his mum) was holding his hand, Jake is a shy boy so had no interest in leaving her side anyway.
They stopped to look at a stall and she let go of his hand to pick something up, it was just a couple of minutes, if that.
When she looked round to take his hand he wasn’t there!
While trying to stay calm and telling herself he wouldn’t go far she started to look around and call his name, but she still couldn’t see him.
Within a matter of minutes an army cadet who was stewarding the event spotted Lucinda and immediately asked what had happened and who she was looking for.
