Phone-in: Screen time and children

Screen time and children. Getting children away from their screens can be a daily battle, but how much more difficult is it in the school holidays?

Getting children away from their screens can be a daily battle, but how much more difficult is it in the school holidays? We'll be asking whether it matters that they're attached to their phones, tablets or computer games and whether it's useful to set boundaries about time spent online. Do you worry that your children are addicted to their screens or are you relaxed about it? Is it any different to time spent in front of the TV, and do you consider what example you might be setting? Jane will be joined by Dr Alicia Blum-Ross who is part of a team at the LSE looking at parenting in a digital age.

Phone lines open at 0800 on Monday: 03700 100 444.
