    Smartphones have become essential tools of learning and entertainment for young kids nowadays. Irresponsible usage of phones can lead to harmful tendencies and it’s important to break their phone addiction. Below are some simple ways for you to try:

    1. Be a role model for your kids and restrict your usage of phones to spend more time with them. Kids are great observers, and they mimic the habits of their parents.

    2. Keep track and restrict the amount of time your kids spend on smartphones by introducing a strict schedule. Teach them early about the importance of moderation.

    3. Communicate with your kids and have an honest conversation with them about their phone usage habits. Let them understand the dangers of phone addiction and how the restrictions are for their safety.

    4. Bond with your kids and take the time out for family activities. It could be as simple as playing board games, reading books, and engaging them in cooking, cleaning, or gardening. No smartphone or app can replace the importance of time spent with family.

    5. Give your children plenty of opportunities to be active and exercise. Provide alternatives to watching television or playing video games, like playing outside, doing stretching exercises, or learning a sport. You can get the entire family involved. It is a great way as well as a fun way to spend time together.
