Kids & The Art of Screen Time | E38

It’s one of the biggest debates in American homes… screen time. Are they on their devices too much? What are they watching? Are their brains going to mush? And on and and on and on.

There are a lot of rumors, myths and fears about screens and kids. This week we attempt to get through the clutter and get to the truth. We talked with NPR’s Anya Kamenetz about her book The Art of Screen Time. She lays out what parents need to know and what boundaries they should consider.

About the author, James

Thank you for joining me for the Positively Dad journey! My name is James Shaw and I'm a husband and father. I live in the Tampa Bay area with my wife, Terri and our young daughter, Naomi. The goal with Positively Dad for us to think, learn and grow. It's easy to get caught up in the day to day and miss opportunities to become amazing fathers. I trust that the conversations we have on Positively Dad will help you see that fatherhood is truly a journey and that we are better together than figuring it all out on our own.
