Worried about your child’s screentime? This book can help!

Raymond The Raccoon Misses His Friends is an educational book created to assist teachers and parents in facilitating productive conversations around building healthy screentime habits. It is purposefully designed using pedagogical strategies to teach children the importance of disengaging from screens.

Follow Raymond, a loveable raccoon, on a quest through the woods as he experiences some of the harsh realities involved in a culture dominated by screen obsession. Through following Raymond’s quest, children discover that their health, wellbeing, and friendships can be greatly improved by disconnecting from screens and reengaging with the real world.

Includes ‘how to’ section to guide conversations about the importance of balancing screentime.

We have partnered with charities, so that for every copy sold, another is donated to an Australian child.

  • I think 7 hours a week of screen time is plenty any longer is not great and I believe can encourage the bad habit of to much screen time. Interactive play and learning is alot better for their imagination

  • Monday-Friday 2-5 hours per day. Weekends more depending on activities/family time, outside and weather. But don’t allow it to become full life. Books, games, sports, arts, crafts and things are much more important.

  • I think the right shows are great for kids to watch and some games offer learning experiences too, so while there should be time limits in place, I think screen time deserves a place in their day

  • It depends on the age of the child to a certain degree. Much less than she does currently I am sure :(

  • I try for about 5 hours a week and on the weekend try and do other things like go to the park ect to keep them busy. I must admit though it does give you a bit of time to do things that have to be done.

  • First, they have to earn screen time – 5-7 hrs to socialise with friends and school work

  • To be honest I’d love them not to have screen time but realistically I have about an hour a day where I let my toddler have some screen time so I can shower in peace and get a little work done!

  • I think it changes for each age group how long they should be able to have.

    As a parent you have an ideal time day an hour but before you know it they’ve had 2,3,4 hours

  • Should love to say 1 to 2 hours daily depending age..Not immediately before bedtime. Easier to enforce when school, kinder, after-school activities times intervene. More difficult holidaytime.

  • Weekly access to a screen would be in the perfect world limited to 1 hour after school each day and 2 hours each day on the weekend but for my sanity sometimes that goes out the window

  • Maybe 7 hours per week. An hour per day at most.

  • 3

  • I think it depends on what the screen is for. I think 1 hour a day for play time is acceptable, but then up to 2 hours a day additional if working on school related work or educational videos etc.

  • The amount of hours for screen time per week should be anything from 4-7hours.

  • 5hours a week
