After a year of zoom school, google chats to stay in touch with friends, and a lot of extra time at home this summer, many of our children are hooked on their screens. Parents are wondering what a balanced offline and online life looks like this school year, and how screen time can fit into the picture.
The good news is that after the summer, going back to school helps to naturally wean our children off screens. Just make sure your child engages in the following other 6 life areas this school year - and then let screen time be life area #7.
Six areas your child should be engaged in for a healthy balance
If your child is hitting these 6 life areas on a semi-daily basis, you can rest assured that they are having a balanced life. Let them enjoy some screen time as modern life area #7, and take a much needed break yourself!
Navigating screen time with children is tough for most parents. If you need some extra help setting up an effective plan and/or teaching your child the skills needed for healthy and responsible screen time, we invite you to learn more about our program. We got you covered!
