Worrisome Screentime Data, A New Call To Action

Worrisome Screentime Data, A New Call To Action

I thought it could not be possible, but for teens, ages 13 to 18 screen time has gone up by 42 minutes over the past four years. Teens now spend, on average 7 hours and 22 minutes per day on screens, not including homework or schoolwork.

And, so much of that time is consumed watching endlessly, personalized recommended videos. I remember going to the video store and spending an hour trying to find just the right movie to watch. That problem is solved; the solution that has stepped in is taking over our lives. 

So, what does this future hold? What can we do now to stop the tidal wave? Here are a few ideas for action.
