It’s About Time!
Talk with kids and together become aware of daily “screen time” (computer, T. V., and video game). Keep a log for a week and see how “balanced” is active play time every day versus screen time. Discuss ways kids can get a healthier balance. Get kids involved in setting their own screen time limits to develop a healthy habit.Check out the Healthy Kids Challenge website http://www.healthykidschallenge.com/ which offers you things like – A great E-Challenge of the month that is super for families to Take the Challenge together each month!
