As a WIRED reviewer, there is no shortage of screens at my house. When it comes to my 3- and 5-year-old, I normally try to set reasonable screen time limits. But in the past few weeks, those limits have completely gone out the window.
If you’re a parent who has felt conflicted about giving your young children more screen time, I hereby give you permission to use whatever tools you have at your disposal to cope with your new reality of full-time parenting, full-time working, all without the help of school, daycare, friends, grandparents, neighborhood babysitters, and social activities. Since my daughter was 2 years old, we’ve tried almost every kid-focused tablet out there. These are our favorite picks.
