If you are on the computer and your toddler pulls your hand do you go and play with her or you continue on the computer?

  • It depends on what I am doing. Usually if I am on when my kids are awake and will possibly want my attention I am doing something quick and important, so if one comes over and taps me or grabs my hand I will pick them up and sit them in my lap while I finish up what I am doing. Occasionally I'll get on and "play" like right now when they are busy playing quietly and if they do it then I get off of here.

  • I push him down on his butt and say, "get lost, kid".

  • i LOVE when they do that. i lift 'em onto my lap and open a new tab for youtube... and my son and daughter both know how to turn the speakers on and we find silly videos and laugh and dance and stuff.

  • LOL benjamink! I'm assuming you're kidding, and i was tempted to write the same thing! :p

    If i'm doing something important, like paying bills or whatnot i'll tell him i'll come play when i'm finished. He's old enough to understand that now (2 1/2) so he doesn't get upset usually. But if it's something silly (like being on here! LOL!) i'll go play (or whatever it is he wants) when he asks me to.

  • if i am paying a bill or writing something important i will have them sit with me and help push keys while i finish up... especially if i'm printing. they load the paper and have a blast.

  • It depends on what I am doing. I just finished my research paper this summer and really didnt have time to play with my DD while I was on the computer. Most of the time I would get off anyway and play with her and try and wait to do work until she was napping.
    It just really depends on what Im doing. Sometimes I sit her up here with me. If Im really doing something important then Ill put on Mickey Mouse until Im done and then go play

  • I don't get on the computer when shes awake... Just don't have anything that important to do on here.
