Summer can be tough on parents! Electronics- TV, phones or video games can be an easy temptation for children. In moderation it's ok but excessive electronics could potentially cause an excessive release of dopamine causing these receptors to be overworked/fatigued. This is called over-sensitization this could led to the need/.wanting for more and more dopamine activation- more video games, instagram stories, ect.
I created these Summer Rules handouts for you to print and hang up in your home!
We had a meeting with the kids yesterday letting them know these will be be the rules this summer! There was some grumbling but they seem on board!
You can download it below!
Please let me know how it goes for your family!
