I resist any urges to give children younger than teens screens of any kind to look at. No tv, no computer, no phone, no video games.

The children are over stimulated and less able to entertain themselves when the screens are off

He would be relieved to know this but I would hate to tell him this and have him dissappointed . There is a child in all of us.
