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?

What Can Parents of Younger Children do to Set the Stage for Success for the Adolescent Years?

It’s all about creating connection. It’s normal for kids to start to pull away from their parents as they enter the teenage years. It’s a time of transition and self discovery for our children.

Inevitably, they’ll face problems during these years. If you’ve build a good connection with your child, they’ll feel more...
