  • Limit your drinking to no more than 1 drink a day for women or 2 drinks a day for men.
  • Keep track of how much you drink.
  • Choose a day each week when you will not drink.
  • Don’t drink when you are upset.
  • Avoid places where people drink a lot.
  • Make a list of reasons not to drink.

Screen Time: How Much Is Too Much?
The Impact on your Child's Development            

Our culture is saturated with the use of electronic devices. Everywhere we look we see it: restaurants, malls, family get-togethers. It is impossible to escape. As parents, in this electronic age we live in, one common question we ask is: How Much is Too Much? With electronics being such a fabric of our current culture, how do we decide? What effects is this or will this have on my child down the road? What does research tell us about the impact this new reality has on our child's overall development? What are the current signs that may indicate that this is becoming a problem and what can we as parents do to remediate it?

Mark Augustine, LMFT is a licensed marriage and family therapist who has addressed related issues within his private practice as well as conducting parenting trainings on the challenges of managing electronic use with our children. He has over 15 years of experience working with children, adolescents and families. He is also a parent of 2 children and understands on a personal level how the use of electronics can test us as parents.
