How To Limit Screen Time Under The Pandemic


The pandemic has changed how we connect. Between Zoom meetings and virtual classrooms, we're spending more time than ever logged on to devices for school and work. So how can we maintain a healthy screen diet and limit our time on our devices when so much of our life now revolves around virtual gatherings?

It's of particular concern to parents, as many children are spending the school day in online classrooms. So how do parents limit their child's screen time when so much more of our lives are being lived on screens? And can virtual learning actually bring new benefits for education?

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss screen time under the pandemic are Screen Education President Michael Mercier; Clinical Psychologist and Transform Consulting CEO Robin Arthur, PsyD; and University of Cincinnati, Clermont College Associate Professor of Accounting Patty Goedl, Ph.D.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
