Helping Out

Two years ago during the lockdown, I was getting concerned that my children were spending too much time watching TV and playing games. So I introduced ‘time tickets’ that help limit children’s screen time.
See my past blog about “Time Tickets
As our lives returned to normal, the time tickets were also forgotten. But the other day, I decided to reintroduce this scheme. When we had this scheme during the lockdown, my children were given 30 tickets (each ticket is worth 30 mins) each week. This time, I changed the rule slightly. They must EARN the tickets by helping mummy out!
Here is this week’s cartoon.
Artist and children’s author Noriko Matsubara documents daily trivial events from the eyes of mother, with touch of lightness and humour.
