BUILDING HEALTHY FAMILIES Did You Know: Teens spend about nine hours a day online. That’s not okay. Setting limits, being familiar with apps, and maintaining open communication are essential when raising teens. Participation in summer activities such as sports are great alternatives to screen time.
