As a child and family therapist, I’m becoming increasingly concerned with children’s irritability. They’re almost living in addictive behavior with a; “Get out of my way I need this” mentality where they are sacrificing, playing outside, being creative, or working on homework so they can get back to their games or onto their favourite social platform.
They are getting hysterically upset when the games are taken away or turned off and it’s causing a lot of problems in households everywhere.
Join me this week to hear me share effective ways to limit and regulate your kid’s screen time, on both social media and online games. Together let’s teach them how to use both moderately and not at the expense of the other areas on their lives.
