Screen Time

The amount of screen time that is healthy for your child depends on their age and what devices are used for. We like to distinguish between educational (or functional) and entertaining (or fun) screen time.


 Make a Family Digital Alliance and agree how, when and where screens are used. Use parental control apps and/or WiFi routers to help guide and develop your family’s good digital habits.


ScreenTime (iOs) and Family Link (Android) are a good start, but installing parental control filters on devices and WiFi are best.
