Setting limits on kids' screen time

(Continued)

Parenting Insight: Countless parents and their children in my practice have been able to limit screen time with support and encouragement. Both parents and children report tremendous improvement in their children’s attitudes when they limit screen time. Parents’ greatest fear in setting screen limits is backlash from children. Typical children do not respond negatively to limiting (not eliminating) screen time. Follow your gut. If you feel screens are taking over the climate of your house, they probably are, but they do not have to.
