Thanks to the adorable client (and his parents) who agreed to make this interview public! Curious about what our Learner Interview looks like? Here's a sneak peek.
Anyone else feel guilty just reading the title of this video?
Yeah, me too!
The first tip I want to mention is to let go of that guilt! We are all doing the best we can right now. And that's not just from me, but many researchers and experts are saying that right now. We need to cut ourselves some slack right now!
This video is not a complete list of research on screens, but just some themes I compiled to help guide the conversations in my house about screen time. I hope you'll find them helpful as you consider what's best and working for your house, knowing that there is no one perfect answer. Context matters, and we all have different contexts/households.
I've also put together a small resource roundup to get you started in your thinking. For further reading (and viewing), I suggest:
Brianna Young, an Iowa educator with her Master's in Trauma and Resiliency, shares 4 strategies to help your children deal with stress.
A special thanks to our educator experts for sharing their content area knowledge and strategies, thanks to our learning community of families, caregivers, and educators, and thanks to YOU for all you do for your kids! You can find the slides, a certificate of participation for professional development hours, and a great video of a toad/frog invasion (a phenomenon!) in this folder.
We hope you join us next month for Energize, Encourage, Equip: Talking to Kids About Race.
We've got you covered! Check out the resources in this folder to help you develop a plan so you are not pulling your hair out this fall. Find the slide deck with tips and strategies, the webinar recording, and a curated list of articles for further reading here. I'm also happy to have a conversation and be a thought partner as you are trying to figure it all out—email me (Megan) at email@example.com.
