Tip: Use the settings within your child’s device (such as “Screen Time” for iPhone, for example) and/or controls offered by your wireless provider to set social media limits that are within the healthy range. For example, if your child spends most of their social media time on Snapchat and TikTok, use these controls to set 1.5 hours on Snapchat and 1.5 hours on TikTok (or whatever combination adds up to three hours and works for you). This is a hypothetical example designed to show the possibilities around allowing time for your child to maintain social connections while staying within a healthy range of use.
