Screen time for kids - Getting the balance right
The Screen time for kids: Getting the balance right article addresses some effective methods for parents, rather than simply ‘watching the clock’ when it comes to children and their ‘screen time’. Screen time is rather a shorthand (though fairly out-dated) way of talking about millions of different ways of being, interacting, creating and learning with and through screen-based technologies.
This article includes a very useful infographic that aims to:
- Support parents to recognise what their children might be learning and why they might be choosing to connect and create
- Help parents differentiate between more-or-less ‘normal’ vs. ‘worrisome’ use
- Signpost practical resources for parents to find out further information.
For further information, have a read of the article and/or download the downloadable infographic.
