to some up with “new rules” around the house; study timetables are drawn up, sleep and wake-up times change, technology access guidelines are put in place etc. They’re all good ideas, but I can’t help but feel sometimes like I’m fighting a losing battle with regards to technology.
- No phones (or other devices) in the bedroom at night, use a real alarm
- No use of devices within an hour of bedtime (light and psychological stimulation interferes with sleep)
- Device use is limited to two hours of leisure time a day (or as decided with their input) plus legitimate use for studying.
