A special message for our concerned parent visitors: You got this! Being a "good parent" means different things to different people, but it's the most important job you get to do-- and only once chance per child to do your best! You have the power to make healthy choices in your home for your children.
The growing culture of disrespect, increasingly addictive design of technology, conflicting advice about what to tolerate, AND figure out how much time online is harmful to yourself or your children is incredibly frustrating for most parents! You are NOT alone in following your instinct that there MUST be a better way. Without government protections it's up to parents and our communities to help youth stay safe.
Research shows children who spend less time online have greater brain functioning and social skills. No amount of lesiure time has been proven safe for youth due to the highly visual graphis of cartoons for littles and addictive design of video games and social media. The negative emotional effects of social media and gaming takes a serious toll on all ages but under 25 are the most susceptible to overuse. As children become older and then carry these habits onto adulthood, it becomes painfully clear the gradual increase of time in front of screens that once seemed harmless is causing problematic behavior and stealing time away from important activities humans of all ages should be enjoying with peers and family. New research is giving parents CLEAR WARNINGS that even minimal time could be damaging. Let's rethink "daily allowances" and "what eveyrone is doing" and do better.
The key to healthy, well balanced life is limiting screen time from a birth, using it only as a a mindful tool as they get older, not for recreation and social purposes. Yet most parents are rightfully still unclear of guidelines or find it hard to implement a safe plan on their own because BIG TECH wants us to believe it's a necessary part of life. The science and correlation between screens and Autism symptoms, behavior disorders, and low cognition from media overstimulation are clear. It's NOT too EARLY or late to make change, you can reclaim your life by design. WE CAN HELP YOUR TRIBE.

Don't wait until screen time is out of hand and becomes a crisis. If you are seeing negative behaviors when screens are removed this is a major sign of overuse that will NOT get better without intervention, nor will children and teens "grow out of the phase" because of the highly addictive design & overstimulating nature of games, apps, YouTube, social media and many educational programs.
