Technology is a powerful tool that affords many opportunities for growth, communication, and fun. It can also bring about tricky situations where kids may need support in making thoughtful decisions. Having an open dialogue and developing a family media use agreement can help kids to preemptively think through important questions around tech use. A family media use agreement can be a powerful tool in developing a shared vision of how your family makes the most out of their use of technology. Use this guide to spark the conversation.
