Managing screen time and online habits can be one of the trickiest parenting issues – ‘Just one more game’, ‘one more text’, ‘one more minute’ all very common responses when it’s time to switch off. If you get an answer at all that is!
Kids can be plugged into a compelling world far removed from home, the dinner table, or a conversation with anyone in the real world and boundaries to balance technology with other activities is a daily battle for most parents.
We will feature entries throughout the #parentech campaign and ask parents to vote for their favourite parent hack – the most votes for an entry, wins $500!
Please read the terms and conditions of entry and we ask if you choose to feature yourself or your child/ren in your video entry, please do not state your/your child/ren’s names or your location in the video as we will not accept your entry for publication.
