How Much Time Should I Give My Kid? Establish a Baseline

Last Updated: Jan 25, 2019 04:13PM PST

One of the toughest question to answer is “how much screen time should I give my kid?”. The right answer depends on the child, their age, how much time they need for homework, extracurricular activities, social activities, number of hours of sleep, etc. The answer is usually not as simple as "2 hours per day".

That is why we recommend you start using unGlue by
only measuring your kids' time without enforcing any limits. Do not apply any limits for a week. During the week unGlue will record the time used online and you will both see how much time was used and on what app or website.

Now that you have a baseline, you can both discuss what limits make sense based on real use instead of assumptions and arguments.
