Tips for Reducing Children’s Screen-Time

Child psychologist and play expert Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk gave us her expert advice on how to limit screen time for kids and encourage learning through creative play.

  1. Keep in mind that screens are intentionally designed to be addictive. The steady stream of exciting moments that they create generates bursts of the hormone dopamine. It is normal to crave more of that excitement hormone! This one insight can help to make sense of your child’s attachment to their screen.

  2. When tension arises as you draw limits to your child’s screen use, remember that doing without something you love means coping with disappointment. That’s a tough emotion. Acknowledge the disappointment, whilst holding to your boundary.

  3. Laugh as much as you can with your child. Laughing builds bonds. It stores up a stock of trust and shared moments. You’ll find you may need to trade on that stock in times of tension. You can negotiate those tricky times more patiently and confidently when you know your underlying relationship is strong.

  4. Build on your child’s interests. Which STEM themes are they most enjoying? Look for other activities, books, ideas and items that expand on that interest. That all helps to enrich their activities away from screens and keeps them coming back for more – eagerly!

  5. Talk lots. When your child creates something, talk with them about it, what it feels like to have achieved that, any disappointments that happened along the way and what your favourite part of what they’ve done is. It’s not only their brain that will be listening. Their heart will too.
