If you're a parent in today's media-crazed society, you've likely wondered how to best to ensure that your child enjoys the many benefits of technology - such as computers, video games, and TVs - without overdoing it.

And as more and more children hop on the media bandwagon at younger ages, this is becoming a bigger dilemma for many moms and dads. For instance:

  • How much is too much?
  • When is it inapprpropriate for your child to watch TV?
  • Should you allow younger children to surf the Internet alone?

You'll find the answers to these and other important questions on Parents' Choice website in an article titled, Media Management Tips.

The author offers ten straightforward guidelines that will make it much easier for you to establish important limits on your child's media usage.

At Nassau Guidance & Counseling, our client care consultants are extensively trained in assessing your needs and finding the therapist who is best matched to your concerns, personality, and availability. Our policy is to set you up with your first appointment within a week of matching you to a therapist who fits your needs. Call us today at (516) 221-9494 for more information.
