PR: 4th Article in 6-Part Series “DISCONNECT TO CONNECT” Addresses Risks for High School Students
GREENE COUNTY, OH -- How do we manage teens and screens? This can be quite the challenge. As discussed in the last three articles, too much screen time can have a lasting impact on the health of children. By the time youth are in their teens, they often believe that they have it all “under control” and they do not need guidance or rules around technology. Unfortunately, that is not the case as adolescent brain development continues into the late twenties. Parents/caregivers still need to have a sound understanding of what is going inside the technology their teens are using so they can offer structure, guidance, and suggestions in managing the world of social media.
