Posted: Updated:
(KWWL) -

While children are watching their favorite television shows or video games, many parents try to catch up on a few things around the house. Now there are some tips for parents when it comes to their kid's screen time.

The American academy of pediatrics is advising parents to become more involved in their child's virtual environments.

Some tips include playing games with your children, tracking their media us, and becoming role models by limiting your own use of technology.

Experts say the quality of the content is more important than the quantity - making sure it is age-appropriate and educational when possible.

They also remind parents to be sure children's use of technology does not interfere with other activities.
