Screen time-savvy parents can turn kids’ tech time into a positive activity.

Screen time-savvy parents can turn kids’ tech time into a positive activity. They can play games or watch movies together to bond over digital activities, and then ask kids about what they’ve learned from the experience—making sure they’re actively, not passively engaging. Parents can also limit the dangers of what lies behind the screens by monitoring media time, so that they can skip ads and inappropriate auto-play content. And no matter how positive the experience can be, limiting screen time is still important. (NPR)
