6 Tips for a Balanced Media Diet

The things we observe in the media has a huge influence on usit's kind of like a megapeer group. Whether its television, online or in the news, children absorb information
and develop a sense of what is normal, desirable or in. Its important to ensure a
healthy balance between their exposure to media and interacting with family and friends
to aid in their physical, emotional and social development.


To build a healthy connected family, set a rule that there is no media on during family
meals. Turn off the TV and dont allow Smartphone or iPads at the table (this includes
parents!). When you allow media during meals there is immediately a disconnection, a
distraction. You are not giving each other or your meal your full attention. Encourage

Join in! Play, watch and listen with your children. Discuss issues with them and
encourage critical thinking. Look at what they are looking at and get them talking rather
than consuming media passively. Plan activities and then do the one activity such as play
one game or watch a show and then turn it off.

Make sure your children understand that what they may read online may not be the
truth but just opinion. Discuss issues with them and encourage them to question and
analyse the messages in the media.

The messages your child is absorbing from media sources may not be in line with your
own family values. Observe and if necessary moderate so that you can help them to
make better choices. Help them to learn responsible behaviour by modelling great media
behaviour yourself.


Consider the time your child is in front of a screen whether computer, tablet device or
television and set time limits. One or two hours a day is ample for a primary aged child.
Ensure rules you set are manageable.


It can be pretty confronting but by keeping a log you will be able see just how balanced
your childs media diet really is. List all screen time, outside play, sport, time spent with
friends and family (without media), indoor play and reading then help your child to make
wise choices with their allocated screen time.
