Even though my kids are too young to have phones yet, I’m already researching ways to help curb phone use amongst kids. I am so bothered when I see kids eyes glued to their screens for hours upon hours. The addiction seems to be taking hold earlier and earlier!
I recently read this article about Joanna Gaines, where she discussed what she does with her own children to limit their screen time. She said she has a cell phone station where everyone puts their cell phones. Their children are not allowed to carry their cell phones on their bodies. So if they would like to check for messages, they need to go to the cell phone station. I thought this was brilliant! If your cell phone is not in your pocket or right next to you at all times, you will not be distracted by constant notifications. This allows you or your children to complete conversations or activities without constant disruptions. I thought this would be a good tip for adults as well!
