It was a lot easier to “unplug” when the majority of today’s parents were young. All they had to do was turn off the television. There were only a handful of channels, as well. Today’s kids have a dizzying array of choices when it comes to using technology. On-demand streaming content, multiplayer video games, and social media make it possible and appealing for children to spend most of their free time glued to a screen. Of course, that isn’t to say that simply using electronics is in and of itself bad.

Most of the parents worried about screen time today had to be told to turn off the cartoons when they were younger, after all. Yet too much of anything can be harmful, especially to developing minds. That’s why it’s important to strike the right balance and set limits to provide a healthy middle ground. Check out the infographic below for some more tips:
