How much screentime is too much for kids? This week on The Children’s Hour we explore digital devices, addiction, and kids. Our crew discuss their own use of screens, and what they think about how they use their devices. Dr. Kristina Sowar visits our studio to answer our questions about the mental health impacts of screentime on kids. We also hear from technology pioneer Dom Sagolla who has advice for kids about self control and screens.
Our playlist this week included Cheryl Wheeler, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, Danny Weinkauf, Bill Harley, Shel Silverstein, The Blackout Band, Relient K, Kormac, Rhonda Vincent and Seth Hoffman. The spoken word piece was by Gary Turk from his short film “Look Up.”
