‘Sometimes it’s the only way I can get him to sit still for two seconds while I’m doing something, but that’s very rare,’ she continued. 

‘I’m very aware of how easy it is for little toddlers or even babies to start noticing the screen. I was on to Josh straight away – no phones around Sunny.

‘I’ll put him outside on the verandah with all his trucks or [let him] play in the dirt. I really don’t care. I’ll do anything for him not to touch the phone’ Elyse added.
