Screens are a wonderful tool to use with children, however they are becoming increasingly difficult to monitor and manage.
Here are a few great examples of questions you could ask yourself to see if the child’s screen time is under control?
- Do you have a plan to ‘manage‘ screen time? Is it being followed?
- Does screen use interfere with what your family/classroom wants to do?
- Does screen use interfere with sleep?
- Does the child easily transition between screen time and non-screen time? i.e. will they get ‘off’ when directed
If after asking these questions you are wanting to put in place some strategies to manage screen time, below are some tips to get you started.
