Children And Screen-Time
Don’t use screens to ‘babysit’ your kids. They are old enough to help you and need to engage. Get them to sit with you and help prepare a salad for supper or help to set the table etc. Help them to feel useful and needed.
It’s not only our children’s screen time that is a problem – it is ours too!
When we spend hours on our screens our children resort to theirs
We have stopped listening to our kids
Kids need us to make eye contact when we listen to them – don’t say you are listening while looking at your phone. Your children will stop talking..and you won’t even notice.
