How To Manage Media
Many parents are frustrated with how to manage the use of electronic media at home. There are so many options now: video game consoles, television, tablets, smartphones. It can be overwhelming.
A good place to start is to create a Family Media Use Plan. Start by thinking TECH!
T: TALK to your kids about media use and monitor their activity
E: Educate them about the risks of media, especially around advertising
C: Co-view and co-use media with your kids
H: House Rules-establish media-free zones (bedrooms!) and media-free times (meals!)
You can work on your own Family Plan
