Happy New Year! I thought this would be a good time to revisit your plans to limit screen time this year and reduce struggles in your house. I have found one of the most useful ways to do this is to set some controls on your kid's and teen’s phones. Then, you are not the one policing as much. This can be done via a 3rd party app, of which I have a big list with descriptions. Some offer rewards and include more extensive monitoring and others are simply about bringing attention to one’s habits.
In today's Tech Talk Tuesday I also share how Apple’s new (launched in September) built-in, time monitoring tool, called Screen Time, is working for some families.
Roll up your sleeves and take a big breath. It is possible to make things go smoother in your home.
