Host: How can parents control their child s screentime? Rene Hackney: With controlling screen time, parents might have some success, if they just give their child a ration per day. We have had families where they give their children two red shifts and those red shifts each represent a half hour. They can use at it any time during the day for their video, their computer or their television, but that is it for the day. They might also as a child watch as a ninety minute movie say, Okay for the next two days there will be none because the idea is to the balance it out of that long run. It might also be a good opportunity to talk to children about what games are their favorite and why, so that they are helping them to better use that time or what television shows are their favorite and why, so the TV just is not on all day when it is not something they are really interested in.
