Keeping Kids Safe: 6 Tips to Reduce EMF Exposure for Children

Think back to 2020, when all children and teachers were learning and teaching online—what a pivot for everyone! With that experience, some schools opened up virtual school settings because it worked so well for some students and families. Virtual school is a reality for a lot of children today. 

Schools all over the nation have even implemented the use of iPads in the classroom setting because children got so used to using them for everything when they were at home—it’s become a new normal. With this increased reliance on electronic devices, concerns about exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) have grown drastically. As parents, it's critical to implement practical EMF protection strategies to safeguard your child's health and well-being—the younger they are, the more susceptible.

EMFs, generated by devices like Wi-Fi routers, laptops, and tablets, are invisible yet potentially harmful. Studies suggest that children, with their developing bodies, may be more susceptible to the effects of EMF exposure. Here at WaveBlock, we have put together this blog article with 6 tips to reduce EMF exposure for your child.

6 Tips to Reduce EMF Exposure for Children

  • 1. Create a Safe Learning Environment: Designate a dedicated workspace for virtual learning that is free from multiple EMF-emitting devices. This helps reduce exposure during online classes.
  • 2. Try Wired Connections: Whenever possible, opt for wired connections over Wi-Fi to lower EMF exposure. Ethernet cables provide a stable and safer internet connection for virtual schooling.
  • 3. Encourage Breaks from Screens: Encourage your child to take regular breaks from screens to minimize overall EMF exposure. Encourage outdoor activities or non-screen-related hobbies during breaks.
  • 4. Limit Screen Time: Set reasonable limits on your child's iPad or computer usage to reduce EMF exposure. Encourage activities that do not involve electronic devices to lower reliance on screens.
  • 5. Activate Airplane Mode: Enable airplane mode on iPads when not using Wi-Fi or cellular data to decrease EMF emissions. This feature turns off wireless connections while still allowing access to offline content.
  • 6. Consider EMF Protection Solutions: Explore EMF protection options like shielding devices with protective cases or using EMF-blocking products designed for kids. WaveBlock EMF reduction stickers make this easy! 

As parents, it's your responsibility to prioritize your children's health, especially concerning technology use. By implementing practical EMF protection strategies, we can minimize their exposure to electromagnetic radiation during virtual learning and iPad use, ensuring their safety and well-being.
