What are you doing about screen time?

Do you worry about the influence and impact of media on our kids? Black children take in more TV, music, and online videos than other groups of children and I worry about the impact that this has on their brain development, socialization, and self-image. But I also get tired of constantly arguing with my kids over these addictive devices!

Do you disntiguish between educational and entertainment, or is all screen time the same?

Especially in the wake of homeschooling, how do you attempt to curb their reliance on these devices…or do you???

I’m open to a conversation with other parents about what strategies seem to work (although every family, child, and developmental stage may differ)…LET’S CHAT!

Here’s a link to the article tagged in the video:
