National Screen Free Week | Community Spirit
Children these days are spending more time with "screens" than in any activity other than sleep, this might be the week to change that.
This week is national "Screen Free Week".
The idea is to reduce the amount of time your kids are spending with screens computers, tv and video games.
Studies show that pre-schoolers are now spending an average of 32 hours each week, staring into some kind of screen.
Excessive screen time has been linked to a number of problems for children, including obesity and poor school performance.
Families are encouraged to reduce "screen time" and spent more time on activities like reading and outside time.
