How to Balance Screen Time Limits for Kids for a Calm and Healthy Family Life with Dr Tara Egan Podcast Episode

Most kids I've met love screen time. I don't know about yours, by if my kids aren't hooked up, they're asking to plug themselves in. As a mother, I can see the benefits of screen time for kids (not least, a bit of peace and quiet for me.)

But what about our kids' brains? I worry that young brains get hooked on screen time (not to mention my own, older brain!) 

Plus I notice that there's often an undercurrent of stress surrounding screen time. When can we have more? Can I play longer? The screaming and crying when it's over. 

We've experimented with not having screen time at all. It works remarkably well. After a few days, my kids will start playing cards together. 

But I don't feel this is a long term solution. How can us parents manage screen time so that our kids can enjoy it in a healthy way?
