Here are a few tips to raise tech savvy children:

  • Set limits and encourage playtime away from the screen.
  • Screen time can also mean family time. It’s a good idea for parents to join in on the fun and play an online game with their children or watch videos together.
  • Be a good role model by following your own rules.
  • Teach children the value of face-to-face communication.
  • Create tech-free zones in the house for example at the dinner table or the bedroom. This allows for more time away from the screen.
