Screen Time Balance


You can find strategies for getting screens out of the bedroom on Dr. Ruston's Tech Talk Tuesday blogposts: Ending Bedtime Madness, Do Your Preteen and Teens have Cell Phones in their Bedrooms?, and several others.

Managing screen time is one of the biggest challenges parents today face. There are several Tech Talk Tuesdays that offer parents support and practical steps they can take.

Some tips to keep in mind:

  • Have an electronic curfew — a set time to put away electronic devices
  • Have a charging station away from the bedroom
  • Set time limits for screen activities like gaming and social media
  • Use screen time management functions and apps
