7 Parent-Tested Tips to Unplug and Play
“7 Parent-Tested Tips to Unplug and Play” is a web resource which describes real-life strategies for reducing children’s media use. The tips come from a diverse group of mothers who attended Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood’s “Healthy Kids in a Digital World” workshops. Presented in a “true story” format, each tip’s description includes a quotation from the mother who recommended it, as well as a description of how it worked for her family. Research on the benefits of reducing screen time is also cited.
Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC) supports parents’ efforts to raise healthy families by limiting commercial access to children and ending the exploitative practice of child-targeted marketing. In working for the rights of children to grow up—and the freedom for parents to raise them—without being undermined by corporate interests, CCFC promotes a more democratic and sustainable world.
