Screen time and Constant Stimulation
Part 3 of Davidson Gifted Perspectives, a video series that examines a number of different gifted-related issues and viewpoints
At the Davidson Institute, we take a whole child, whole family approach to our family work. Sometimes that means talking about educational planning and advocacy, and other times that means confronting the day-to-day realities of being gifted. Recently, a parent shared that their child is always “on” and needing stimulation. She wanted to know if there was research or a consensus on screen time for gifted kids. Another parent chimed in with a similar situation and affirming that “having no chill” can come with the territory of being a gifted kid. Overall, they were wondering if there is a healthy way to get gifted kids to slow down. Hear our take in this video!
