Getting screen time balance

Screen time can offer children opportunities to learn and develop new skills at a touch of a button but like anything, too much of it can have a negative effect on their wellbeing.

As children get older and more independent online, finding the right balance for your family can be challenging but the key is to think about it early on and set some clear boundaries around their online use.

Navigate our screen time hub to find out more about its impact on children, practical steps you can take to make it work for you and your child and resources available to support them.
