Parents have several ideas about how they’re going to raise their kids when they bring them into the world. Unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned and what one plans can be much tougher or bizarre to execute. Couples set up high expectations of being the perfect parents and often it slides down hilariously when the reality of birthing and parenting comes into the picture. George Lewis, a comedian on TikTok shared the reality of how parents eventually give in to their own rules of screen time and it’s a dose of chuckles for fellow parents.

He acted as a parent himself to show how the enthusiastic curve of “no screen time” hilariously declines gradually. Starting with the pre-parenting stage, where couples are all eager to welcome a baby and are all up and at getting it right, George said, “No, when we have our baby, there’s going to be zero screen time because that’s what we’ve read in the books.”  Moving towards the initial stages of having the baby, George said, “He likes the music? Nah, that’s alright, he feeds a little bit off our television.” Explaining the further decline, George mentioned how parents discover screen time as a temporary breather.

“Oh look, the cartoons have come on. No, no, don’t turn that off, we can have minutes,” he said. Once the five minutes settle in, the parents know there’s no going back and George hysterically points out the same. “Maybe we can have 20 minutes a day, maybe half an hour a day, television is just sort of like a moving book, an hour a day is nothing,” George went on explaining how the screen time increases as their interest to prevent the same decreases. He also enacted parents’ naive ways of making up reasons to justify doing the exact opposite of what they had enthusiastically planned.

“We live in a world full of screens, it’s unavoidable. Two hours a day max,” George went on. “As long as it’s not the first thing in the morning." This immediately switched to the accurate transition where parents need screen time to keep their kids engaged and not throw in tantrums. “He’s awake, put the telly on,” George said. The accuracy of the turn of events was too hilarious to ignore and every parent could feel the chills of seeing exactly how their thought process worked. “Not in the morning” turned to “As long as it’s not before bed.”

However, that too didn’t last as George revealed, “I think we need to do it before bed to calm him down.” said, “At this point, I need to be paying Ms. Rachel's salary because she clocks in every day at 7.45 in our house.” @shelikessweets said, “I co-parent with the telly and it's a beautiful thing.” @selmafudd revealed honestly, “Before I had kids, I was full of options but now 4 kids deep my advice is to do whatever works.” @learnlovegrowmomma said, “This is my exact revolution.” @notdiva56432 said, “I’ve gone down the justification rabbit hole as well.”
