Summer is here and if you’re already facing battles managing screen time in your home, take a moment and ask yourself what your child is doing when they’re in front of the screen. It’s one thing if they’re consuming content, it’s another if they’re being productive. Screens can be fantastic tools to enhance learning, spark new ideas, and teach new skills. The key is to tap into interests and provide ways kids can create content to learn new skills during screen time so there’s a nice balance between consuming and creating.
Kids who are obsessed with watching YouTube videos for hours on end, spend hours on end sitting on the couch and playing video games, and squint at the little screen of their mobile device can be doing so much more. Figure out what your kids are doing when they’re using their screens and harness their love of YouTube, video games, and apps into developing new and useful skills.
