Smartphones are mobile phones with internet access. They are capable of a range of functions, including social networking, listening to music, playing games, browsing the internet, checking emails, taking photos and videos and watching TV – along with the usual texting and calling!   Smartphones provide a variety of interesting activities and ways for young people to engage with their friends and families. However, it is important to be aware of what these devices can do and how you can talk with your child to help them to use this technology in safe and positive way.

Below is a link for useful tips and advice on healthy gadget use, alternative tech for learning, creativity and discovery, and how parents can encourage a balanced screen time ‘diet’ with their teens/children.
