While we walk together through the common challenges presented by modern day technology, we need to remember these three things that we commonly get wrong as parents when pulling back on screen time:

  • Be consistent.
  • Be a role model.
  • Include our children in the process.

When it comes to managing screen time we need to continue setting appropriate limits and sticking to them while modeling intentional screen time ourselves as parents. 

The idea is not to track or punish our children. It is to train them and be intentional about the boundaries we set for ourselves. 

Be firm with your boundaries and always stay in learning!

Together we are keeping our kiddos safe, and helping them to set appropriate boundaries themselves.
