    I got the knackered "downstairs" video when my brother went to uni mid 90's - 1994 maybe. The buttons on it were as worn out as my copy of Lethal Weapon 2 would be a couple weeks later.

    Try to spend as much time as possible with the family as I only get to see the bairn for about an hour after work. We’ve tablets and stuff but if the bairn is playing on hers it’s usually in the same room as us.

    Isn't the kids having control of the living room TV one of the primary reasons why people relent and get TVs for the kids' bedrooms?

    Same. They have tablets but their time is controlled on them. They do have their uses for getting them to STFU mind.

    No idea - I don't watch much bar the footy anyway and theyre in bed well before that so I don't mind. Its not like theyre glued to it - a couple of episodes of Paw Patrol or Mickey Mouse Clubhouse before their tea is all they watch

    Only time the tablets come out for our 2 is when theyre battering our heads in the car on the way to the inlaws :D

    Same here mate. A midi Hifi with twin tape decks should be enough these days. We never see the kids it’s literally like a hotel.

    Said earlier mate, I want to spend time with the family. By the time dinner is done, bathed and ready for bed the bairns have about 30 minutes before they go down.

    Ones four, other 11 months.

    Not a long to spend time with them.

    Even when they get older I won’t allow TVs and screens in the bedrooms. Too many kids I teach are raised by the gadgets in the house.

    I can prat about on my phone when the kids are watching PJ Masks. Or use catch up for anything I miss live.

    Not an option for parents in the 80's/90's.

    True. The only thing you could do back then was record on VHS and hope you didn't manage to miss the ending (something my dad did with most of his recordings).

    This. The way people go on about the evils of technology you'd think it all came without an off switch.

    Mine are 9 and 12 and spend all their time fighting if I don’t hypnotise them with technology.

    It’s the only chance I get to get hold of the big TV remote when I chase mine to their rooms to watch their TV’s/iPads. Nowt wrong with that in moderation.
