Adults themselves are challenged with the balance of screen time.  Consequently guiding children along the path of healthy screen time is a battle cry heard around the world!

Have you thought how life would be right now if the use of a computer wasn’t so necessary? It is kinda like being on planet earth and saying you don’t breathe the air!  Embracing the fact that computers play a vital role in the majority of the world will give oneself personal power. It can help us accept as well as connect with one another. Certainly children know no other way,  frankly neither do many adults. Just think of the new vehicles we appreciate driving around, entertainment at the end of a long day, connecting with family and friends on social media.  Adults have the advantage or disadvantage, depending on your perspective, of knowing what life was like before the technology boom occurred. Therefore, criticizing the device dependency gets us no where. In addition, it creates a huge communication block with young people. Many families are struggling to navigate screens.
