#108: Managing Screens and ADHD
We’ve all been there. You give a “five-minute warning,” but no matter how many times you say it, they look at you in surprise when it’s time to turn off the iPad or stop playing video games. The argument quickly escalates, right? It starts with negotiation, which spirals into a meltdown, and you wonder if you should just take away screens for the next 100 years. As parents, we can create an environment where we are proactive AS A FAMILY regarding screen time. In this episode, we will give you some tips we use for managing screens and ADHD.
MEET OUR TEAM
We are Lori, Mallory, and Katie. Lori and Mallory are Child Psychologists, and Katie is a speech-language pathologist. Most importantly, we are moms, just like you.
After working with families over a combined total of 40 years, we saw a need to provide ongoing support and education to parents raising children with ADHD.
We can’t have your attention and not mention Time Timer. As parents, we are looking for anything that will support our kids and make our lives easier. The original Time Timer does just that. In our homes, it allows us to teach our kids how to visualize time. This helps with activity transitions, independence, and building executive function skills. Trust our pro-tip; it’s a game changer!
