When Should Kids Get A Smartphone?
Friday, May 05, 2023
I think Cal Newport has done his homework on this topic, and I found his conclusions solid.
Here are three additional recommendations I have for "effective" mobile device use:
- Turn off all notifications. Only add back the critical ones like: Text messages from family members, key home automation alerts, local emergency notifications, etc.
- Don't sleep with your device within reach.
- When trying to do very focused work, put your phone in airplane mode.
