Passive Parenting and Too Much Screen Time

Passive parentingRaising children in today's world is a big challenge, with new issues parents must face popping up constantly. Perhaps one of the more unique challenges that parents today must deal with is the ubiquity of technology, as the Internet, TV, video games, and more have all grown into ever-present parts of our lives that simply weren't around when today's parents were kids. Furthermore, these media outlets have also played a part in the rising trend of passive parenting - where parents simply don't take an assertive stance in raising and disciplining their children as needed, creating potential problem children and strife in the home.

As a parent, it can be hard to battle the temptation of passive parenting, especially as it relates to technology in your home. It can be very easy to simply plop the kids down in front of the TV, computer, or video games to get some much-needed time to yourself, but this form of passive parenting, and the overuse of these devices, can lead to arguments, tension, and other problems within your home when it comes time to shut them off, or when overuse becomes a problem.

Luckily, you can avoid some of the negative consequences of passive parenting with the help of the Mikko Que. This innovative device gives you unparalleled ability to monitor and manage your kids' screen time on the TV, Internet, video games, and other household entertainment devices, all in an easy-to-use format. With the Mikko Que you can reduce the use of electronic devices by decreasing your child's time allowance over a period of time, take a more purposeful stance against passive parenting, and help teach effective time management skills.  For example, in a given month you might allow your child 10 hours a day of use. Then, you can reduce usage to eight hours a day the next month and so on until your child's media consumption is more in line with recommended standards. This technique is less obtrusive, avoids some side effects of passive parenting, and will result in less resistance.  It will also give parents the peace of mind that during sleeping hours their children are not up watching TV, playing video games, or surfing the Internet.

To find out more about the Mikko Que and how it can help you combat the pitfalls of passive parenting, as well as how it can help you create a healthy, effective system for managing screen time and media consumption in your home, contact us today.
