Thanks to all of your who came out on Tuesday morning to hear Dr. Yalda T. Uhls discuss parenting in the digital age. We are so grateful for your time and support.
Common Sense believes strongly in working to effectively engage families and build a positive home-school connection around technology. We know that you are in great hands with Jayme Johnson, Angela Mackenzie, and Landon Loeber, as they do a smart job of offering you and your kids support in this area at school.
In terms of what you can do at home, here are some useful links from Common Sense Media:
- Common Sense recommends that you take time out to have "The Talk" with kids about media use. Here's a great link that outlines talking points and tips on how to approach this discussion with your children.
- Another essential resource for families is our Family Toolbox. Here you may access everything from the new family dinner project to our digital glossary to our family agreement and the customizable device contract.
- Many people asked about how to approach setting filters for their tech at home. Here's a recent post with advice for Everything You Need to Know About Parental Controls.
- On the issue of addiction, here's a post: What should I do if I think my kid is addicted to video games?
All of our online resources are free 24/7. Check them out and, if you have problems finding something specific, please call the LA office at 310-689-7536. Additionally, you may always reach out to Jayme Johnson with any questions about technology, digital media, or parenting as it relates to 21st century skills. Thank you again for your time and interest.
