• Interact with your children: Instead of trying to keep them busy by giving them a phone, try spending some time interacting with them.
  • Keep computers or TVs in shared spaces: This will help you keep track of their usage and limit screen time.
  • Have a tech-free time: Make sure that a few hours in a day are devoted to zero screen time for the entire household.
  • Be wary of your habits: If parents devote too much time to mobiles and computers, children will follow the same. Set an example for your children.
  • Eat together: Meal times should not include screens; they are a time for the family to sit together and eat.
  • Indulge in physical activity: Make sure that your children spend sufficient time in outdoor activities. This will minimize the use of a Smartphone.
