Parents Need Screen Time Limits Too

Parents should reconsider their relationship with their phones; save the most stressful aspects of smartphone use for when other family members aren’t present; and focus on mealtimes, bedtimes and other downtime by unplugging with the family, according to a one-page resource in JAMA Pediatrics. The resource also urged parents to avoid undesirable phone use behaviors that may be imitated by their children, as well as to resist documenting and posting everything.
