Surviving Screens & Getting Your Kid Back

Ally talks with Cindy and Eliza Farina. Eliza is a 7th grader who says in the height of the pandemic, her screen time reached as high as 16 hours a day. How accurate that is, mom Cindy doesn't know, but says shutting down devices can get ugly. With light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, how do we get our kids back from the clutches of screens? Penn State Psychologist Meghan Owenz says S.P.O.I.L. them. She maps out how socializing, play, outside time, independent work and literacy can help reverse the negative effects of devices.
