Episode 6: Screen time

Barb McGrath (mom of 2) joins Tenille for a chat about screen time, one of the biggest barriers to getting kids moving. In addition to the surprising stat that the average Canadian kid spends 6-7 hours a day in front of a screen, they talk:

finding a method of managing screen time that works for your family
tools to help parents monitor and control screen time, including ChoreMonster and Qustodio
whether it’s realistic to expect kids to regulate their own screen time
setting a good example in an age where many adults spend most of their time on screens for work, entertainment, socializing and everyday tasks

Barb and Tenille also discuss recent headlines, including:

a Forbes article about the American Academy of Pediatrics revising its guidelines for screen time
A Psychology Today post that claims screen time is making kids moody, crazy and lazy
