Maintaining Healthy Screen Time

Screen Time

The resources below provide parent information and resources related to screen time. 

Common Sense Media has developed a wonderful, short video introduction outlining five steps to a healthy media diet (see below).


The American Academy of Pediatrics has developed an online Media Time Calculator. Parents can use this tool to determine how their child uses his or her device time each day. With this information parents can then user their other online tools to develop a media use plan. 

Common Sense Media also posts a parent support page with answers to many questions commonly asked by parents. Questions are broken down by child age ranges. Parents may even post their own questions, and their support team will respond.
