Set parental controls and be actively involved.
With screens dominating both ours and our kids' lives, Ingrid feels that it's important to stay active in your child's screen time. Parental controls are an important tool that can be used to give kids access to age-appropriate content. She said, "Even if you're not going to be sitting down with your child playing with them — because maybe they don't want you to for whatever reason — it's still important for parents to be involved and know what's on a child's screen." Making smart decisions before your child has their hands on a device is important and can assure you that their time spent with a screen is in some way beneficial.
