Hello Ms. Weiss-Voskidis,
I wanted to express my appreciation for your letter in this month’s issue. I have three children: 20, 8, and 2 years of age with varying degrees of exposure to screens. It has definitely been a struggle to limit screen time for all of them, especially the youngest two. While my 20-year-old uses her screen time mainly to access work- and school-related things, she also spends a great deal of time on social media, which has concerned me. For all three of them though, we encourage spending time together doing different things such as playing games, doing arts and crafts, and even reading books to each other.
We see this as a work in progress, for not only them, but also for us parents.
Thank you again for addressing this growing issue.
