Screen time is a fact of modern life but families need to be conscious of when over-use can replace other activities that are integral to childhood development. In 2016, Kinderling was the first childhood-focussed organisation to launch this initiative, which has subsequently been adopted by Government and other education-based institutions around Australia.

Kinderling’s top tips to help you Unplug and Play are:

  1. Create a new morning routine that doesn’t involve screens
  2. Make your meal time screen-free
  3. Encourage sensory play to keep your children occupied when you need to get things done
  4. Limit your own screen time in front of the children

The Kinderling #ScreenFreeChallenge runs from Sunday 15 October to Sunday 5 November 2017.
