From the Parent Institute:
Create Screen Time Habits For The School Year
If your child is like many middle schoolers, her relaxation time probably includes TV, surfing the Internet, playing video games and texting her friends.
This isn't harmful in itself. But too much can be, especially when your child should be focusing on schoolwork. A good goal is to confine most screen time to the weekends and school holidays.
During the school week:
- No screen time during homework time. Physically take electronics away during homework time. If they are nearby, the temptation is just too great.
- Your child deserves study breaks, but she should spend them on exercise, spending time with family or having a snack.
- Take your child's phone at bedtime. Many kids send and receive texts late at night.
- Turn off the TV and computer 30 minutes before bedtime. Your middle schooler needs time to unwind.
