How to Cut Down Your Child's Screen Time

Spending too much time absorbed in a screen can negatively affect a student's physical health as much as their mental health. Because of this, it's important that you set limits on your child's screen time. If this is something you'd like to do but don't know where to start, these tips can help you on your way.

Plan Activities Away from Screens

Simply telling your child to put their phone down may not be enough to get them to spend less time in front of a screen. Instead, take the time to plan some fun activities that can replace their screen time. For example, a family game night can encourage your entire family to put down their phones and tablet for at least an hour and a fun hike on a Saturday morning can get your child away from the television for a few hours.

Regulate Screen Time at Home

Another way to ensure your child doesn't spend hours absorbed in a screen is by creating rules in your home. Start off by making certain areas of your home electronics-free zones. The dinner table is a great place to start because this rule can work for your entire family and not just your child. Encourage conversation and be sure no one, including yourself, has their phone during dinner.

Lead by Example

If you're setting new rules for your child but aren't following them yourself, it can be harder to get your child to follow them as well. Make an effort to not let your phone distract you and choose to do other activities instead of getting distracted by social media and work emails. Grab a book, go for a jog, or take on a new hobby so that your child sees that they're not the only one spending time away from their electronics.
