The December edition of the School District of Rhinelander’s Digital Citizenship tips and resources focuses on Screen Time.

 

Children in this digital age spend between 5 to 9 hours of total screen time, which can include gaming, watching TV, viewing online videos, social media and texting. This can start early and it increases dramatically as kids become tweens and teens.  Common Sense Media (https://goo.gl/XzhSkT) offers advice and answers frequently asked questions for a variety of age level.  Common Sense Media Screen Time FAQ

 

It is important to teach children to moderate their own screen time habits, and finding the right balance for your family is essential.  HealthyChildren.org states, “All children and teens need adequate sleep (8-12 hours, depending on age), physical activity (1 hour), and time away from media. Designate media-free times together (e.g., family dinner) and media-free zones (e.g., bedrooms). Children should not sleep with devices in their bedrooms, including TVs, computers, and smartphones.” 

 

Parents can create a personalized media plan with their children’s needs in mind with this online tool. See the tool in action before trying it. (Video)
