Problems in Single Parent Homes - Can Too Much Screen Time Play a Role?

Problems in single parent homesIn 2003, the results of a massive study completed by Swedish researchers reported that children experienced addictions and serious psychiatric problems in single parent homes more frequently than those in two-parent homes. For any single mother or father, this news might be frightening, especially when considering the challenges that single parents - and their children - already face.

Furthermore, one of the common problems faced by families in single parent homes is overuse of the Internet, TV, video games, and other devices. With only one parent in the home, often children simply have nothing better do. But, if you are a single parent looking for a solution to your child's screen time issues, the Mikko Que can help. Our innovative device gives you the flexible, easy-to-use tools you need to monitor and manage your child's screen time across a range of devices in your home, including the computer, TV, video game systems, and more.

With the Mikko Que you can reduce the use of electronic devices by decreasing your child's time allowance over a period of time.  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 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.

For more information on the Mikko Que and how it can help ease some of the problems in single parent homes, such as children spending too much time in front of the TV, computer, or video games, contact us today.
