June Blog: 11 Ways to Help Your Kids Break Free from Electronics and Get Outside

11 Ways to Help Your Kids Break Free from Electronics and Get Outside

This month's blog is 11 Ways to Help Your Kids Break Free from Electronics and Get Outside.

In many aspects of human living, technology has revolutionized the way things are done. The growth of screen technology through various devices has helped parents to kill boredom in the family, particularly among children. However, without appropriate control, technology has negative implications on families - children spend much of their time pursuing such activities as playing video games, surfing through the Internet, and watching movies and TV programs.

In this post, experts share eleven tips that help you limit the screen time of your kids to a reasonably healthy level.

App of the Month

Every month we are going to feature a different, and hopefully FREE, iPad/iPod/iPhone/Android educational application. Visit our ever-changing app page.

The App of the Month for June is Pocket: Save. Read. Grow. by Read It Later, Inc ( iOS and Android ).

THE PLACE TO ABSORB GREAT CONTENT.

Use Pocket to capture the content that comes at you all day long, and curate your own space filled with only the topics you care about. Save the latest stories, articles, news, sports and videos from any device, and any publisher or app. Then fuel your mind with a reading, watching, and listening experience designed for calm eyes, free hands, and fresh focus.

SAVE FROM ANYWHERE.

LISTEN TO ARTICLES.

Pocket's listen feature turns any news story, article, or blog post into a hands-free, eyes-free learning experience. Now you can turn content into knowledge while you cook, commute, work out, walk, or just relax and listen.

READ EVERYWHERE.

If it's in your Pocket, it's on your phone, tablet and computer – even when you're offline. Whether you're taking a news break, reading from bed, or breezing through articles on your commute, Pocket makes the most of your time by getting you straight to the news feeds, magazine articles, stories, information, news, and sports that are compelling to you.
