Message length 300 characters recommended

Older kids can understand why you limit screen time. If you explain that you don't want them to use that as their only form of entertainment and provide things to do instead of screen time they usually oblige.

But if you ever feel like you may need extra help enforcing these kind of things, most internet routers and cable boxes come with parental controls. I have the internet shut off in my house from 10 PM to 6 AM on devices my kids use through my Comcast router.
