Chalk Talk: Being a Parent in a Digital World
Finding a balance for your kids with all the social media and digital options in our current world can be a challenge. Kids would be attached to their digital devices 24/7 if parents allowed it. The games and the information available on the Internet can be great fun and educational tools if used appropriately. Most American young people spend an average of 6-8 hours per day with digital media from TV, to computers, to handheld devices. Pediatricians and other professionals recommend that parents keep TV's and computers in central locations, communicate with your child about the pros and cons of the digital devices and the Internet, and make sure you and your child participate in activities that don't always include some form of media.
