When it comes to setting screen time rules, every family is different. And even in your own family, the rules are probably not always the same.

You'll likely change screen time rules as your kids grow, and you may have a different set of screen time requirements for summer, school nights, and weekends.

But one thing does work for pretty much every family: having your screen time rules clearly laid out with a visual reminder will make them much easier for everyone to follow.

When I was looking to update our family screen time rules for this school year, I found a lot of screen time checklists. But none of them worked for us. A screen time checklist isn't a one size all fits all kind of thing. That's why I created my own screen time checklist for our family and I have it here as a fully editable and customizable printable for you too.

Need some inspiration when it comes to setting your rules for screen time? Here is some great advice from Common Sense Media on setting screen time limits for all ages.

You may also consider limiting screen time until:
  • Specific chores are completed.
  • Kids have read books for a certain amount of time.
  • Children have finished their morning or after school routine.
  • Homework is done.
  • Kids have had a certain amount of outside playtime.
The important thing to remember is to keep your rules clear and consistent, and having them written out on your screen time checklist helps you do just that.

Once you're finished, you can add the screen time checklist to your Kid's Command Center to help you child keep track of what he or she needs to do before screen time starts. It's a simple way to give your child independence and autonomy while also reinforcing your expectations.
