Family Technology Use Checklist for Healthy Habits


This Family Technology Use Checklist for Healthy Habits provides a comprehensive guide for families to establish healthy technology habits. The checklist includes turning off screens at least 30 minutes before bedtime, limiting screen time to no more than 2 hours per day, taking breaks from screens every hour, using blue light filters to reduce eye strain, keeping screens at least 2 feet away from the face, using headphones or reducing noise exposure, using parental controls to limit access to inappropriate content, keeping devices in a common area, encouraging physical activity and outdoor play, and modeling healthy technology habits. By following these guidelines, families can promote healthy technology use and reduce the negative effects of excessive screen time.
