School’s out, and the kids are home! And soon (way too soon) you run out of all the activities you’ve been planning for summer. Then comes the “I’m bored!” and the TV being on way too much.
So we’ve gathered fun ideas for you and your kiddos to minimize screen time in your home this summer because we know it’s hard to do. And we know the research: with less screen time, kids are less aggressive, have a better diet, and sleep longer and better through the night. Here’s to a better, healthier, and happier summer!
