Episode 6: Screen time

By SIM

Barb McGrath (mom of 2) joins host Tenille Lafontaine for a chat about screen time, one of the biggest barriers to getting kids moving. In addition to the surprising stat that the average Canadian kid spends 6-7 hours a day in front of a screen, they talk:

  • finding a method of managing screen time that works for your family
  • tools to help parents monitor and control screen time, including ChoreMonster and Qustodio
  • whether it’s realistic to expect kids to regulate their own screen time
  • setting a good example in an age where many adults spend most of their time on screens for work, entertainment, socializing and everyday tasks

Barb and Tenille also discuss recent headlines, including:
