Not All Screen Time Is Created Equal
MARCH 15, 2017
As a parent, I am fiercely protective of my children. I want them to be kids. I want them to play sports, get lost in great books, collect bugs in our backyard, and engage with one another creating art projects, choreographing dance numbers, and playing good old fashioned board games. I often feel these traditional pastimes are less attractive than the pull of the screen. I resent the magnetic pull that iPads and apps have on their time and attention.
