Ways to Help Decrease Your Teen's Technology Time
Direct them outsideWhether you have Sunday Fundays or Diversion Thursdays, find something that appeals to them on the other side of their screen. Finding local activities like paintball games, laser tag, or go kart racing will not only get them active, but will allow them to have fun in the process.
Remain in controlSince you are the parent, you will need to guide your child in the right direction. Set timers for how long screen time will be allowed at home and follow through with what your rules are for how technology is used in your household. Change your Wi-Fi password accordingly, making it impossible for your kids to use their devices outside the realm of your timeline. Protecting your teenager in a mobile world from the dangers that technology in excess can create, may seem impossible. Communicating with them and modeling the behavior you wish them to have can in turn generate achievable balance in regards to their technology time. Getting better order in your life surrounding how your children function with their technology, will make life much better for everyone involved. Even though you may live in what is considered a mobile world, finding a balance with better forms of mobility for your family will be beneficial all the way around.
