Media - With Your Kids
One of the best parts about my job is all I get to learn myself as a parent. This particular study about media and technology was very convicting to me.
As a busy parent (it seems like those two words are redundant), I tend to use the little “screen time” my kids have as time to get some work done. If I was to give myself a grade for the amount of time I watch TV or do computer games with my kids, it would be pretty low.
Maybe I should re-think that habit, says a new study analyzing media habits of families with children ages 3-10. It encourages parents to participate WITH their kids in their technology use.
Interestingly, it also says that parents tend to think “other kids” are at risk for over-exposure to media, or exposure to toxic messages through the media. But not their own kids. By the way, that’s not unusual. Parents tend to under-estimate their own kids’ risk behaviors.
What do you (or parents you know) do to try to share with your kids in their media/technology?
