THE DIGITAL PARENT Tips and Tricks for Parenting in the 21st Century
"Make your own family media use plan. Media should work for you and within your family values and parenting style. When used thoughtfully and appropriately, media can enhance daily life. But when used inappropriately or without thought, media can displace many important activities such as face-to-face interaction, family-time, outdoor-play, exercise, unplugged downtime and sleep."
Mrs. Giron says: Being clear about expectations for children is important. Having set rules about how and when to use devices makes for a more peaceful home.
