Dear Parents Who Feel Powerless In The Screen Time Battle

    Wow 205 weeks! That’s so sad! This is one reason I am so happy we moved to our acreage. We spend so much time outside enjoying the little things. We still watch tv, but I think our screen time has decreased dramatically in the past year. Wintertime is always a struggle though. Thanks for the eye opening info!

    • Eryn Lynum says:

      Yes! The wintertime struggle. I totally get it…. We still watch TV also, but are working towards less and less of it. An acreage sounds like it would certainly help 😉 We just moved to the mountains in pursuit of a more intentional and value-driven life. The outdoors just have a way of wooing people towards what matters most.

  2. Tessa Kirby says:

    I could not agree more! I get trapped in this cycle of guilt all the time. Thank you for reminding me that I am not alone!

  3. Christina says:

    TV can be my best friend most days! It’s hard to tell my son to turn it off when I watch it on so much myself. I am big on background noise when it is just me and him alone in the house. I do try to get him out doing things too. It can be tough.
