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.
