Some Additional Parent Recommendations:
not using phones and mobile devices at the dinner table – talking as a family is very important for development
keeping screens out of the bedroom at bedtime
talking as a family about keeping safe online and about cyberbullying and what children should do if they are worried
not using phones when crossing a road or doing any other activity that requires a person’s full attention
making sure children take a break from screens every two hours by getting up and being active
policing their own use too – parents should give their children proper attention and quality family time and never assume they are happy for pictures to be shared
NO tech challenge! Play some games, do a jig-saw, have a conversation!
