These are some of her recommendations :

  • Parents should have password for all App Downloads if the child is under 16 years old.
  • Challenge students to give up screens after a set time and see how long they can last and the impact it has on sleep quality and general well being. This may make students more aware of the impact technology is having on their sleep.
  • Become familar with the apps your child is accessing. Click here for guides about TikTok and Instagram.
  • The website Common Sense Media https://www.commonsensemedia.org/ offers reviews, age recommendations and advice on a range of popular social networking sites/chatting apps etc. They provide good articles on a weekly basis.
