Getting the Best from Media and Tech

All screen time is not the same. Especially now – when time with tech is hard to limit- focus your attention on the quality of content and online activities.

Make a call or send an audio note instead of texting, which is impersonal and easy to misinterpret

“Educational” apps for kids – do your homework to ensure their quality

Watch things together and set age-appropriate limits and controls on your children’s devices, so they are not stumbling onto inappropriate content

Warn children about the importance of privacy and the dangers of predators and sexting
