LISTEN TO THE PLUGGED IN SHOW, EPISODE 153
We talk a lot about screen time here at Plugged In. The less time your kids spend in front of a screen, the better, we often say. And it’s true.
Or is it?
Some experts are now saying that how much time you spend with screens is less important than what sort of content you’re spending the time watching. In other words, if you’re limiting your kids’ screen time to just 30 minutes a day, but you allow them to spend those 30 minutes watching, say, the Saw franchise (in, ahem, pieces), that’s probably not a great tradeoff.
Our team bats around the concept during this installment of The Plugged In Show.
Oh, and speaking of screen time: If you’re considering spending two hours of it with Black Adam, you might want to stick around and listen to Adam (no relation) and me discuss DC’s latest superhero flick—this one starring Dwayne Johnson as the titular antihero.
So turn away from your own screens a bit and give us a listen. Then add to the conversation on Facebook, Instagram or email ([email protected]). And click on the links below to dig a little deeper into everything we’ve talked about.
