In this digital age, monitoring the amount of “screen time” for kids can be tricky — especially after they spend most of the day at school working on a computer.
Camille Cole, an Education Technology Specialist with the Canyons School District, joined us on Good Morning Utah with some advice.
Camille says not all screen time is created equal, so the key is to find the right balance. It helps to talk to your child’s teacher about how much class time is spent on a computer. Also, pay attention to what your children are doing online when they have their devices. Is it productive?
Most importantly, according to Camille, is to be the example. If you don’t want your kids to be looking at their phones all the time, then put your phone down, too.
