Health Tip: Managing Your Family's Digital Life


HealthDay News
Updated: Jan 14th 2019

(HealthDay News) -- TVs and computers are part of everyday life, but the American Academy of Pediatrics urges caution about overuse of digital devices.

They should never take the place of face-to-face time with family and friends, the academy says.

The AAP suggests how to manage screen use at home:

  • Set limits on media use and be aware of which software and apps your children are using, which sites they are visiting and what they are doing online.
  • Encourage unplugged playtime.
  • Screen time shouldn't always be alone time. By watching with your children, you can encourage social interactions, bonding and learning.
  • Be a good role model.Teach good manners online, and limit your screen time.
  • Appreciate the value of face-to-face communication.
  • Create tech-free zones during mealtimes, family and social gatherings.
  • Don't allow devices at night, to help kids avoid the temptation to use them when they should be sleeping.
  • Do research on any apps that your kids use to monitor quality and appropriateness.
  • Warn children about privacy and the dangers of predators and sexting.
