Kids complaining about being bored in the car? Turn on a movie. Kids won’t sit quietly at a restaurant? Hand em an iPad. Kids are getting great grades and their homework is done? A couple hours of video games is fine. But is it really? How much screen time is too much? Where is the line? Today, we know that screen time has significant motor, cognitive, mental health and social impacts on children. So much more than we may have realized. But when you just NEED A DANG MINUTE... it’s hard to say no. This session will talk about the impacts of screen time on our children’s behavior, and share tips for how to pull back when you’re in too deep.
