TECH – Simple parenting guidelines for media and screen usage.
Screen time is something that worries a lot of parents and medical professionals these days. We’ve never before had babies and children – developing minds – using technological devices as they do today. We know that a lot of things can affect the brain differently in children than adults, but no one really knows if, or how much, screen time can affect children. In The Art of Screen Time, we delved quite deeply into the world of parenting and media usage, but sometimes an entire book can be quite hard to remember and implement (although I definitely think it’s worth a read for everyone). There’s already quite enough things to remember as a parent, so it really helps me to simplify things completely. That’s why the TECH system resonated so well with me. First of all the acronym is very easy to remember – TECH for technology and media usage. But what does it stand for?
