Screen time poses a challenge for most families, but even more so during the summer, when school structure falls away and many kids’ free time (good!) defaults to being filled with “zombie” electronics (bad!). Simplistic, catch-all rules ignore the fact that managing screen time is complicated. In Episode 126 of Edit Your Life, Christine and Asha acknowledge the complexity of our ever-changing relationship with electronics. They talk about what has worked (and what hasn’t) in their families, and offer tips and perspective on how to navigate your own family’s screen time situation.
