Screen Time: Tip of the Week #4 – Social Media

Kaarin Anderson Ryan, PhD

Social Media. This is one of the most difficult screen time issues to tackle, but a few simple strategies can make a big difference. For yourself: Limit your time on social media, set timers if needed. Turn off the notifications, allowing yourself to check social media at set times during the day and then turning it off. For your kids: Limit and Follow. If they have been posting on social media you should be allowed to see these public posts. Set up parental controls and only allow them to use social media for certain times each day. Remember that when they are on social media the whole world is influencing them, without restriction.
