In celebration of Screen Free Week, We’re posting podcasts and scree-free-related posts each day. If you are completely unplugging this week, we’ll be here when you get back!
In this episode, April and Saren discuss their own experiences with screen time growing up and what they struggle with concerning screen time now that they’re moms. They offer suggestions to help you create a screen-time policy that can really work for your family as you help your children understand that “harmless” enjoyment of screen time can start to become “harmful” as it keeps them away from other worthy pursuits. April and Saren also offer specific ideas for fun and meaningful alternatives to screen time for children.
