What Parents Need to Know About Screen Addiction

Published 12th June 2019

A free online safety guide on Screen Addiction.

It can be challenging for parents and carers to know whether children are spending too much time on their devices. Furthermore, it’s even more of a challenge to know whether a child is addicted to the internet and social media. As technology is becoming more pervasive, children and young people are experiencing tech – related dependencies. Do we as parents and carers have the knowledge to identify and support children and young people who may be developing an addiction to their devices?

In this guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as health & wellbeing, app addiction and a lack of sleep.
