Between tablets, cell phones, video games and computers, the minutes of daily screen time the average child logs in can quickly add up to hours. But is there a way to limit screen time while also giving kids the tools to compete in a global economy? Where do tech gadgets and digital media fit into effective and caring parenting? Is there a way to protect kids from online predators and cyberbullies?
