About this time every spring, parents and children across the country take part in a healthy challenge. They pledge to step away from entertainment found on televisions, hand-held devices and computer screens — and rediscover the joys of entertaining themselves. They play board games, read out loud, take walks or cook a family meal together. They agree to be screen-free for one week.
This year’s official screen-free week was April 29-May 5. Did your family take part? Do you schedule your own screen-free week, or will you take part in a future screen-free week? Let us know with your comments below.
