Does your child excel at playing video games or watching You Tube at an Olympic Champion Level? Does your child make it sound like their relationship with “the device” is as sacred as two people who are madly in love with each other?
I have this type of drama in my household all the time.
You are not alone if you struggle with your child about about the right time and place to enjoy a video game, text friends or watch a video. Weather we like it or not, technology is here to stay and is going to be a big part, both culturally and socially, of our child’s life for the rest of their life.
Think about all the amazing things that they can do.
They can text, face time, send pictures and videos to friends and family from all over the world. They can play games with each other online, text gaming strategies, and talk about their most epic game play over school lunch. This is what they do and it’s a huge part of being a kid these days.
But when you have a child that loves time on devices but also struggles with concentrating, time management, thinking ahead, organizing their day, and possibly reading, it can be tricky for your child to figure out how to do it all.
Could the smart phone be a recipe for disaster for your child?
Maybe, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Your child needs you to make a plan so they can enjoy those electronics but also make time do their rest of their lives too.
Join me for my next video and I’ll share more with you.
After you take a listen, I would love to hear from you. Be sure to leave a comment and share with me how you manage all those devices in your home.
