Unplug and Recharge: How to Introduce Screen-Free Saturdays
We all know that young children are spending more and more time in front of screens. But how much time exactly? Research from the Kaiser Family Foundation in 2010 reveals that kids ages 8 to 18 now have an average of 7.5 hours of screen time every day. 4.5 of these hours are spent watching TV. Over the course of a year, that adds up to 114 entire days of screen time for entertainment! To counter this ever-increasing screen time, why not consider screen-free Saturdays? Going screen-free is not as hard as you think.
