Pam Withers and Cynthia Gill, sisters and co-authors of Jump-Starting Boys, share their top tips on limiting screen time for children without coming across as a tyrant. Psych Central's Margarita Tartakovsky interviewed the education and parenting experts to compile seven hands-on tips that every parent can use to ensure that their children don't get sucked into too much television time. Simple steps like being interested in what kids are watching and having children earn screen time can have a huge impact on their media consumption, and still keep the household relatively conflict-free.
Withers and Gill elaborate on the importance of cutting down on television and fostering a love of literacy in Jump-Starting Boys: Help Your Reluctant Learner Find Success in School and Life, with practical tips for parents and educators.
