Here’s how you can become a healthy role model for your child: Establish household rules about electronics. Rather than set limits just on your child’s electronic use, establish rules for everyone. Saying Don’t multi-task. It can be tempting to send text messages while you watch TV or scroll. In today’s digitally-fueled times, that means guiding him or her not just in the real world but in the always-on virtual one as well. Teach your children to use technology in a healthy way and pick.

If your child pulls up a pro-drug site, have her compare the information to clubdrugs.gov, hosted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and www.drugfree.org, hosted by the Partnership at. The more our children use electronics, the less physical activity they do. Fight the boredom by making a list of things to do to keep the kids occupied. Set aside play time. Better yet, watch, play or use them with your child.

Seek out interactive options that engage your child, rather than those that just require pushing and swiping or staring at the screen. Use parental controls to block or filter internet content. Make sure your child is close by during screen time so that you can supervise his or her activities. Your child will likely mimic your media use so it’s essential to be a good role model.

Read books, engage in physical activity, and spend time outdoors. Set healthy limits on your own electronics use. Kids need rules about technology.

Establish rules about the sites your child visits, the games he plays, and the movies he watches. Don’t allow your child to gain. Physical Health Issues. Research has shown that increased time with electronic devices can lead to a wide variety of serious health problems including insulin resistance, obesity, increase abdominal fat, and higher risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

16, 17 There seem to be several reasons for the increase in these physical health problems when screen time increases: Kids. 1. Your child can’t control their screen use. The researchers call this “unsuccessful control,” when kids have trouble stopping using devices. If you’ve tried to impose limits on screen time, but your kiddo just couldn’t deal, this could be an issue.

2. Loss of interest in other activities. Exposing children to electronic games is ultimately a personal choice of the parents. Video and electronic games for children have both pros and cons. Choosing games that are age-appropriate and limiting screen time to an hour or two each day is a recommendation put forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Check your children’s media use for their health and safety. Avoid exposure to devices or screens for 1 hour before bedtime. Do not let your children sleep with devices such as smartphones.

Discourage entertainment media while doing homework. Plan media-free times together, such as family dinners.
