What Parents Need to Know About Screens

From Catherine Steiner-Adair, author of The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age via the Huffington Post:

  1. Don’t put your baby in front of a screen.  Ever.
  2. And think hard about putting your toddler in front of one, too.
  3. Teachers can tell if your child is getting too much screen time.
  4. Your kids hate your screens.
  5. Just because we can be connected to work 24/7 doesn’t mean we should be.
  6. Screens aren’t good for your marriage.  And that’s not good for your kids.
  7. In order to be a good parent, you need to take care of yourself.
  8. Sorry, but you really don’t know what your kids are doing online.  But that doesn’t mean you should give up trying.
