Tips of the Week:
* Balance is Key- Create time/spaces where kids opt out of devices, offer alternative activities like drawing, reading, board games, dancing or playing.
* Be Choosy- Be picky about what your child watches or plays online. Select high-quality, learning-focuses programs that promote learning such as PBS KIDS.
* Do it Together- Co-view media with children to help them understand what they are seeing and how they can apply it to the world around them. Playing and watching together creates more meaning and learning.
