After such a difficult year, I hope the summer has brought some rest and joy to your family. As an author of the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for media use in early childhood, I’ve been thinking a lot about what this pandemic has taught us about kids’ relationships with technology. It can seem overwhelming to manage the enormous and fast-paced digital world available to kids, so here are a few simple ideas below to consider as you try to strike a healthy balance.
Like everything in parenting, the goal isn’t to be perfect; it’s to provide structure and communication so that you and your child can learn and make changes over time.
Summer travel provides kids a chance to stretch their minds and bodies, experience new places and communities, and connect with family. This is especially important now. Use this time to tell each other new stories about this challenging year, listen to each other, and find calm.
Take care of yourselves, and safe travels!
