Let's Stop Lying About How Much Screen Time Our Kids Get

Hey, you. Yes, you, the one who has one eye on her computer and the other on her smart phone while the TV is on in the background. Listen, I know there is a ton of bad press out there about how damaging screen time is to your kids and that you firmly believe that it will rot your child’s brain and send them all kinds of terrible messages about consumerism and the appropriateness of Selena Gomez as a role model. But guess what? Screen time isn’t going to kill your kid. It’s not going to kill them even a little dead. More »
