While we were home 24/7, many kids and teens were on screens more than ever before. They used technology for school, they used technology to connect, they used it to entertain themselves. But summer is here and many parents are asking how they can decrease the amount of time that kids are on screens — ideally, without creating power struggles.
Hear Rachel Bailey, host of Your Parenting Long Game Podcast, interview Lisa Honold, Director of the Center for Online Safety, as they discuss parents’ role in online safety, whether the difference in type of screen time matters, how to track and monitor what kids are doing online, how to approach our kids and teens when it comes to reducing the amount of times they spend on screens… and even how we should deal with the guilt we’ve had over how we’ve let them use screens in the past.
When it comes to kids and electronics, there are a lot of opinions and potential troubles.
How much is too much screen time? How do parents get them off their screens without causing meltdowns? Should kids even have screen time at all?
In this episode of Exceptional Parenting Podcast with Wendy Bertagnole, Lisa Honold, Director of the Center for Online Safety, helps answer all those questions and teaches parents how to avoid the three biggest mistakes when setting screen time rules.
We also dive into realistic, research-based strategies to help kids navigate screens safely.
