Most children are eager and love to learn. Encourage this by making learning fun. Simple activities such as visiting the library or a short walk can be made into a fun learning activity.

Children learn by your example. Be a positive role model and live by positive example in all that you do.

iRules Top 5 Tips

By Janell Burley Hofmann,
Author of iRules: What Every Tech-Healthy Family Needs to Know About Selfies, Sexting, Gaming, and Growing Up

How do we begin making iRules? Tech Talks! Gather ’round for tech inventory, tech preferences, expectations & boundary building. This can be done with one child or the whole family can create house iRules. Tech talks encourage dialogue to help raise tech healthy families and limit struggle.

Not sure if you should share that pic? Permission to Post! Using this strategy we teach our children to ask a friend’s permission before sending or sharing a photo of a peer with others. This is a good tool for parent posts too. Do you need to pause for permission to post that silly selfie of your son on Facebook? Think about it!

What happens after we say good night? Keep sleep sacred! Experts, researchers, parents, students, and pediatricians agree that technology can keep impact the quality of our sleep. Our days are full and we hardly ever “turn off”, this goes for our children too! We must make space to recharge growing minds and bodies. Sleep is something we must protect!
