  1. Interact with them: Instead of giving them a phone to keep them busy, spend some time interacting with them and talking to them. This will eliminate the need for a device.
  2. Put computers or TVs in shared spaces: This way it will be easier to keep track of their usage and limit screen time.
  3. Opt for a tech-free time: Ensure devoting few hours in a day to zero screen time for the entire household.
  4. Watch your habits: If, as parents, you devote a lot of time to mobiles and computers, children are naturally inclined to follow suit. Be a positive role model for them.
  5. Eat together: Meal times should be free from screens and a time for the family to sit together and eat. Make this a practice.
  6. Indulge in physical activity: Ensure that the children spend sufficient time in outdoor activities. This will make them less prone to using Smartphone.
