The Art of Screen Time

Recording: The Art of Screen Time, Mar 10, 2018


Anya Kamenetz


Kids are now exposed to their first screens at four months old, compared to four years old in the 1970s. Finally there's a no-nonsense, don't-panic, evidence-based guide to one of the biggest challenges facing parents today: mediating our kids' use of media, when media is like the air we breathe.
With this book, Anya Kamenetz—a journalist, award-winning expert on both education and technology, and a mother—takes a refreshingly practical approach. She surveys both the experts and hundreds of fellow parents to find out what they really do at home. She hones a simple message, a riff on Michael Pollan's well-known "Food Rules": Enjoy Screens. Not too much. Mostly with others.
