WHAT IS BETTER SCREEN TIME?
We’re the family who kept their TV in the closet for over a decade; pulling it out only for the Olympics and family movie nights.
A lot had changed between 2005 and 2017.
Technology had evolved and morphed into MUCH more than television. We now carried mini-computers in our pockets. And we had a teenager.
We were a low-tech family who had to rethink our approach to screens.
We starting parenting from a place of confidence, instead of fear.
Now we share family-tested strategies with other parents so that: kids can stay kids, teens can learn to use tech as a tool (slowly!), and parents can spend less time worrying and more time connecting with their kids.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
DESIGN A PLAN
Pull out the flashlights and candles. Turn off the lights.
Put away the devices.
And get ready for some unforgettable fun!
We know we need to ‘disconnect to connect,’ but sometimes we need a reminder on how to make that connection happen. Guest author Jessica Rydalch shares three important ways to connect with our teens.
In our digital era, we often want to avoid boredom, discomfort, and dealing with the hard stuff. I know many families who allow free-reign with electronic devices on road trips for this reason. It’s much easier to hand everyone a device and just let everyone zone out, but if we do this, we miss out on unique opportunities to connect with one another.
Worry less, connect more with what matters!
