Technology use is a hot topic in my practice… and my home! Mamas and papas, this topic extends from your relationship with each other as parents, to your relationship with your children, as well as with each family members’ social circles. I suggest all families make a tech use contract.

In creating this contract with your children that attends to your concerns regarding their use of technology, you must also address what your children expect of your use of technology. Many children and teens express frustrations with parents who check their cell phones for texts during dinner or when watching their child perform.
