Screen-Free Week 2013
Posted on April 29, 2013 at 8:00 am
It used to be TV Turn-Off Week, but now we are surrounded by screens so it has to go farther. This is a great week to spend time outdoors, read books on paper, and use meal-time and travel time for family discussions. Resources are available online and at your school and library. Common Sense Media has a great list of books to get kids hooked on reading. And every parent should read Dwight Garner’s beautiful essay about the all-too-brief era of reading aloud to his kids. The goal of this week should be to help you start habits and rituals that will endure even when the screens go back on.
