National Screen Free Week

April 30, 2013

Let’s face it, sometimes screen time can calm down a restless toddler at a doctor’s office, can distract kids on long trips or can even be a learning tool. However, there is something to say for turning off the screen – no matter what size – and playing outside, using imagination for play, reading a book together even as a family or having family game time.
