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
