Phones. Computers. Tablets. Game Consoles. TVs. The ubiquity of screens today is impossible to ignore and even harder to manage, especially if your teen has ADHD. It’s true that technology is powering huge advancements in personal organization, learning, and information gathering. It’s also true that screens are really really distracting — and can become a tremendous way to avoid the things we need to (but don’t want to) get done. The key to using screen time productively, for many families, is the establishment of a parent-child agreement and system designed to maximize the value of electronic tools and to minimize the downside.
