On the podcast this week, Elle and Abigail talk about the difficulties they, and many parents have, setting limits on screen time.
They view the issues that worry us most, from the addictive nature of screens to the disconnection, bartering, and bribery that seems to step up around them.
They wind up with some cute stories about screen times in their own families and move on to discuss some options for peaceful resolutions using tools that ease tension around screens between parents and children.
