Screen Time: Set an example

As a parent, you have a big influence on your children or teens (yes, them too!). To reach a more balanced connectivity at home, there are several concrete steps you can take. Setting an example is undoubtedly the most important.


Be a good role model

To maintain credibility with your children, your words and actions have to be consistent. However, don’t strive for perfection! What is important is for everyone to work together to enjoy the advantages of the Internet and prevent screens from taking up too much space in your family.

Because you are and will always be your child’s first role model, they are very likely to imitate your habits. Just like for diet, alcohol and physical activity, nothing is better than setting a positive example… And this goes for all the adults at home!
