In a new book, a leading psychiatrist argues we are all addicts now - with the smartphone the “modern-day hypodermic needle.” Are there ways to get clean without becoming a total tech hermit? You bet!
When other children are invited to your home, leaving them to their own devices can be a recipe for trouble. But here’s another consideration: Almost certainly, it’ll be a lot less fun.
The way we talk to our kids about their online habits can help or hinder in the quest for digital wellbeing.
We love our social platforms - but we also wish we spent less time on them. A new study has found adult users are happy to pay for help in setting limits.
So many of our children are online almost constantly. So it was only a matter of time before scammers homed in. That time has come.
We may dangle time on devices as a reward - or limit access as a punishment. But does it work as a long-term strategy?
It’s the eternal question of digital family life: How much screen-time is too much? The answer, say experts, lies in your child's behaviour.
Everybody knows how addictive our screens can be. But understanding why can help us break the spell and start using technology more mindfully.
If there's anything teens hate more than a lecture about screen-time, it's being bossed around and having their privacy invaded. So imagine the shock when they realise that their favourite social media platforms are doing exactly that.
