I hear from parents regularly about their frustrations that although they set limits around their phones and game consoles when it’s time to do homework, they then have found out that the child/teen simply resumes their social media interactions and gaming on their homework device, i.e. tablets, laptops or desktops.
So you can be better prepared to stop these workarounds, I’ve outlined what popular apps and games work on which devices.
A new phone. A new video game. There’s always something else that, if you buy it, can ultimately create friction between you and your child when you are trying to support less screen time.
Then, there’s the problem of making this gift, which can be seen as a compromise for some kids, as fun. After all, what good is a screenless present, if your child isn’t going to use it?
So to make this holiday a little easier on all you parents, for this Tech Talk Tuesday, I’ve created a list of more than a dozen great gifts that can really help you make this holiday season a win for both you and your child!
