Our constant use of devices makes us less mindful as parents. Set aside screen-free spaces and time to spend quality time with your children
NEW DELHI :
Most parents try to restrict their wards’ screen time. Some families set strict TV-watching timings on weekdays, with some homes banning TV altogether during the school week. Even in homes where such rules are not enforced, parents typically cannot stop themselves from asking children to “do something else" besides playing video games or watching YouTube. Few parents, however, bother to curtail their own media use at home; working parents are tuned to their devices 24x7.
