School’s Out for the Summer! But, whomp whomp... Many families are still staying home due to COVID-19.
While things slowly start to open we know that many families are staying in and that means more screen time for kids. Although there are studies that show the benefits of “gaming” all parents are aware that this can make our children more vulnerable to obesity issues, vision problems, and lack of interest in other types of activities.
An easy way to avoid this is to set Things-To-Do Reminders on your TickTalk Watch. Read a book, exercise and clean your room are some great reminders that will keep your child active and away from the screens. Even if it is for a short period of time!
Unicef wrote a great article citing both Pros and Cons of screen time along with some more helpful tips.
Stay safe and stay active, TickTalkers!
