It is almost time for children to go on holidays and a Nigerian mum, Samiah Oyekan-Ahmed has already hatched a plan to ‘preserve her sanity.’
Samiah’s plan, which has now gone viral, is intended to prevent her son from getting addicted to video games and tablets during the holiday. Instead, she listed alternative ways her son can engage himself.
The mother of two wrote a binding document for her son to sign ahead of the holiday period. The document contains a list of rules which regulates TV time, game time, kitchen time, as well as the amount of snacks he is allowed to have each day.
The document also listed the conditions that have to be met before enjoying the holiday benefits and consequences to be faced if the rules are broken.

Holiday soon! God help us all! Binding document for my son to sign! Feel free to copy if you’re trying to prevent video game/tablet addiction this holiday! I will type this up and he shall sign. Infact a little winchy part of me is hoping he breaks the rules so I can just pack them all up! 😈 Im also rationing snacks this holiday! We will pack up treat packs for each day! If you like eat all your snacks before 9am, if you like save it to last the whole day! Your call! I’m fully on OPERATION PRESERVE MY SANITY! PS: Before I’m bombarded with ideas for summer holiday activities, we have those sorted thank you very much. 😊
