Cricket Media (cricketmedia.com), publishers of multiple award-winning magazines for children and teens, together with Parents' Choice Foundation, recently launched a KEEPING TECH IN CHECK (KTIC) campaign, providing families with the tools, tips and resources which will empower them to manage technology for their children (and themselves) in mindful ways. Departing from long-running, time-limited programs such as “Screen-Free Week”, KTIC’s tag is “it’s a balance, not a ban” and it’s something that will be available for families everywhere 24/7/365.
Designed with both parents and kids in mind, the KTIC hub features screen-free activities (available to download as PDFs) from the archives of Cricket Media, including stories from all 11 Cricket magazines (fiction, non-fiction, read-aloud, easy-to-read content), time-tested activities such as games, crafts, experiments, writing prompts, wordplay games, plus a handy tool to monitor screen time, developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. For parents, the KTIC hub also features a “road map” for program success, with blogs, links to research and relevant topics and expert advice. All families who sign up for KTIC will receive a welcome kit with more ideas for family activities and goodies, and more.
We are excited to be KTIC Ambassadors here at ABCD Diaries and look forward to bringing you much more exciting and relevant content from Cricket and Keeping Tech In Check!
