#3 Can we talk about screen time?
Show Notes

This is a fascinating topic to me, and not mainly because I like it, but because of the impact that it has on our kids. Screen time is a battle that I have decided to fight. When I say fight, I mean I've decided not to be passive about it but to try and establish clear boundaries and small things at home, with the hope of creating a "healthy" relationship between my kids and screens.
Here I share my learning and experiences along the way, with practical things that have worked for us.
But hey, this is a log road; this is just the beginning.
