Tips to encourage your child to develop healthy screen time and eye care habits!
Switch off devices when eating and an hour before bed: screens distract kids from meals and might also affect their sleep. While older kids can have some screen time, do still set a limit and watch what media they consume.
Face-to-face time helps your child developed social skills. Schedule screen-free days for the whole family to unplug, unwind and talk!
Your child needs 2-3 hours outdoors per day. Idle hands reach out for devices, so keep your children busy with kids’ activities.
Remind your child to take a 5-minute break every 30 minutes of screen time. Get them to rest their eyes by looking out the window.
Do not let your child walk and use screens at the same time. Remind him to pay attention to his surroundings.
