Screen time and kids is an ongoing debate in my house, and I’m sure many of you may share the struggle. Our kids are growing up in a different time than we once did. Screen time for me as a kid consisted of an episode of Sesame Street after lunchtime, or twenty minutes of Super Mario on the Original Nintendo. Now, kids can find their way around the App Store within the blink of an eye. Between phones, Nintendo Switches, computer gaming, and other options out there, it is overwhelming.
What are your thoughts on screen time for kids? Every parent has to make the right choice for their own family regarding how much screen time to allow, but I thought this article was interesting in pointing out the importance of limiting screen time for our kids.
