Episode 315

This time of year, navigating the use of screens can be a real challenge — especially when you’re raising children with big emotions. The summer can start off feeling more relaxed, but then come the power struggles over how long children can be on screens and the meltdowns when they have to get off of their devices. Fortunately, a few simple changes can reduce the drama, even during those times when children are even more likely to turn to screens as entertainment. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why kids with big emotions struggle with screen time limits
  • How to increase your influence to reduce screen time drama 
  • How to give your kids the skills THEY need to get off of screens more easily (helping them deal with transitions and boredom!)
