As summer break approaches, now is the time to manage teens’ electronic usage. Facebook parent company Meta has compiled resources to help support experiences on Instagram and virtual reality.
The parental supervision feature allows parents to link accounts to set age-appropriate boundaries.
Meta also provides a quiet mode, which allows teens to stay focused when needed and set boundaries with friends and family.
The “Take A Break” mode gives users a full-screen prompt to take a break from their devices.
The tools are meant to encourage physical activity and quality time with family, paired with responsible online use and habits.
