Balanced Play

This screen routine allows access to digital entertainment as part of a well-rounded and intentional Play Plan. It makes sense when your child generally enjoys a variety of activities but sometime slips into the habit of using screen time as their go-to-activity.

Daily Time Allowance

A Daily Screen Time Allowance makes sense for children who need routine and structure – and struggle with transitions. It is clear cut and can reduce daily conflicts around screen time – as long as its well-defined and consistently applied and monitored.

Educational Media Only

This screen routine limits kids only to digital media with a clearly stated educational focus (including educational games). It is a useful alternative if your child has trouble disengaging from digital entertainment but gains learning and confidence from educational games.

Homework First

This screen time routine prohibits access to on-screen digital entertainment (e.g. apps, games and social media) until homework has been completed. It’s straightforward, reduces screen time arguments, and places a greater emphasis on other non-screen activities.

Monitor Only

This screen time routine focuses on monitoring screen time use. It makes sense for parents who don’t generally limit their kids’ screen time – but still wish them to be conscious of how much time is being used and ultimately help them learn to self-regulate.

Screen Time Tokens

This routine is usually in addition to the other screen time routines. It gives parents the opportunity to ‘catch their kids doing good’. And kids the opportunity to take initiative.

Tasks First

This screen time routine allows access to screen time only after completing certain tasks, chores, and goals. It makes good sense when your child has slipped into viewing screen time as an entitlement…while daily responsibilities seem optional.

Weekends Only

This routine is good if your child is struggling academically. It may also be useful for children who are overly engaged in digital media use and struggle to transition to other activities.
