Screens are common place in our lives. At home, at work, in schools, at restaurants and even in prams and the back of the car. Screens have replaced outdoor play. But what is the impact of this on the developing brain and our children’s overall well-being? What role do adults have as advocates for our children?
During this interactive talk we will go through the research showing its impacts on mental health, social development and physical health of our children. We will identify the difference between purposeful use and non-purposeful use. Finishing up we will cover some strategies and ideas of reducing screen time, ‘what to do’ instead and the role nature can play to improve our children’s mental health and well-being.
