Screen Sense: Part 1 – The Problem

Kids are getting addicted to their screens, so we're going to the experts to find out how much screen time is too much

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Kids are getting addicted to their screens, from cell phones, to computers, TV and video games.

In part one of a new series, I’m taking a dive into the new digital dope.

We’re going to the experts to understand how much screen time is too much, how it affects young people, and what you can do as a parent to make sure tech is a tool, and not a lifestyle.

Tom Kersting is a psychotherapist, and author of the book, ‘Disconnected: How and Why We Should Rescue Our Kids From Their Electronic Devices‘.

He’ll be speaking in Charlotte tomorrow, August 31, headlining an event called, ‘Reconnect’, which is sponsored by ‘Families Managing Media‘. It runs from 7 until 9 PM at the Pease Auditorium at CPCC. $10 for adults, kids get in free. You can get tickets by clicking here.
