Are your kids constantly glued to a screen? Where do you draw the line to keep screen time in check?
Parents often ask school staff about strategies for managing screen time at home. This is often a difficult question given the individual nature of every household. However, there are a number of apps on the market that allow parents to have greater control over the devices in their household.
One such app is Google Family Link. This app allows parents to monitor screen time, set device bedtimes and manage the apps that can be used on a device.
But remember not all screen time is bad.
Screens are a part of family life and when used in moderation can offer positive benefits, like:
· enhancing learning experiences
· facilitating social interaction
· improving motor skills, coordination, literacy and numeracy
