WHAT IS BETTER SCREEN TIME?

We’re the family who kept their TV in the closet for over a decade; pulling it out only for the Olympics and family movie nights.

But…

A lot had changed between 2005 and 2017. 

Technology had evolved and morphed into MUCH more than television. We now carried mini-computers in our pockets. And we had a teenager.

We were a low-tech family who had to rethink our approach to screens.

We starting parenting from a place of confidence, instead of fear.

Now we share family-tested strategies with other parents so that: kids can stay kids, teens can learn to use tech as a tool (slowly!), and parents can spend less time worrying and more time connecting with their kids.
