Tips to Quarantine Your Child’s Technology

 

Have you lost your child to technology?  If so, it might be time to quarantine technology… kind of!  Since the beginning of the pandemic, screen time for most children has increased.  With school, sports, and many camps being canceled, our children are spending more time at home, plugged in.  Is it  time to take your kids back? If so, here are some helpful tips on doing just that.

  • Create technology-free play time based on rewards for behavior and grades
  • Designate technology-free times during the day
  • Set technology-free spaces within the home
  • Make it point to have technology-free family meals together
  • Assign “sleep time” for electronics (included with many internet providers)
  • Be a technology role model for your children by putting your own device(s) away

“My daughter and I visited the Orchard Park Road location of Immediate Care on Saturday evening.  I don’t know if I will receive a questionnaire to tell you this, but we had a really great experience at this facility.  This location is so well run!  We were greeted at the door by a very cheerful person (so sorry I do not remember her name).  She gave us all of the information we needed and set expectations to what our wait time might be so that we had enough time to fill out our paperwork in the car. 

Our nurse, Michelle, kept in contact with us to let us know when we would be allowed to enter the building for our tests.  Michelle was very thorough in her questions.  She took our vitals, and the test was administered quickly, and as painlessly as humanly possible.  Our doctor, Katie, arrived several minutes later to ensure we understood everything about the testing procedures.  In such a stressful time, everyone at this facility was patient, pleasant and very thorough.

Our wait time to enter the building was just over an hour, as expected.  Given the numbers in Erie County, it could have been so much longer.  Please thank your team for making this process so easy and efficient.  These are difficult times.  We could all use more compliments and fewer complaints.”
