If I Had An Ipad

We currently don’t own an ipad, mostly because I haven’t been able to justify the expense ($380-$570 in Australia).  Also I wonder will this be yet another area of battling the screen?  I’m not totally opposed to owning one, and in the hope of doing so I’ve entered many contests hoping to win.  I suspect there are many wonderful educational opportunities we have yet to discover, but for now I just read posts such as the ladies below share and absorb.

    Thanks for your links…although i am not a homeschooler i do wonder if somehow i will be putting our girls at a disadvantage as they grow up if we don't get something of the sort. So much expense though and i worry about the screen time. Lots to consider isn't there?
    Have a lovely week .

    I love that you don't have one yet … so refreshing and to be frank the kids do weary of them after a while.

    My only recommendation is that you don't buy one of the cheap imitation tablets. They do not last. I have been bitten three times!

    How great to hear from you again:) Screen time really concerns me, they so need time to play.

    That's so interesting to know, filing it away. Sounds like your experience is similar to mine with mixmasters. Did you buy a better quality this time?
