The Darker Side Of Screen Time
06.26.2019 - By Life Kit: Parenting
Emotional outbursts. Lost sleep. These are signs that your kids are spending too much time with digital devices. Here's what you can do about it.
Here's what to remember:
- Pay attention to your children's emotional relationship with screens, not just how much time they are spending with them.
- Don't just make technology rules based on time.
- Do guard bedtimes and mealtimes.
- Don't expect taking away the phone to solve all your family's problems.
- Mentor your kids; don't just monitor them.
