Tips to help families set reasonable boundaries during challenging times
Tips to help families set reasonable boundaries during challenging times
Helping children when and where they need it most
Zoom birthday parties. Remote school. Endless texting, scrolling and video games. With so much of kids’ lives happening on screens right now, parents everywhere are wondering: how much is too much? And how can we set rules that kids will actually follow?
This week on childmind.org we’ve got the latest tips from our experts on how to think about screen time during the pandemic. We cover strategies for setting realistic boundaries, helping kids make the most of their screen time, and knowing when to cut yourself (and your children) extra slack. We also offer advice for helping kids deal with cyberbullying and social media stress, plus how watching TV with your children can benefit both little kids and older ones.
