Spoiled Right:! Delaying Screens and Giving Children What They Really Need
With Dr. Meghan Owenz
Tuesday, March 9
7:30 PM ET | 4:30 PM PT
For years, we’ve been told kids are spending too much time on screens. But, what if we focused on the activities we want them to be doing instead? On our next Action Network Live!, we’ll chat with book author and expert Dr. Meghan Owenz, whose SPOIL system has helped families focus on the multitude of activities that build healthy children and incidentally reduce screen time and its negative effects.
It is the much needed “what to do” answer instead of the heavy-handed “what not to do” mandates about children’s screen time. Dr. Owenz makes it simple by explaining how to use goal science to reduce screen time by focusing on what children need more of, like social time, play opportunities, outdoor experiences, chores, and a strong relationship with reading. Plus, one lucky participant will win a copy of Meghan’s book, Spoiled Right. Must be present to win!
Dr. Meghan Owenz is the author of the book, Spoiled Right: Delaying Screens and Giving Children What They Really Need, which applies goal science to incidentally reduce screen time by providing a science-backed, developmentally appropriate system for emphasizing alternative activities of childhood. Meghan is also a parent, psychologist and university professor. She is the co-founder and writer of the popular parenting website, Screen-Free Parenting. She is a regular speaker on the topic of children’s screen time and uses her expertise to advocate for science-backed changes to policies and practices that affect children’s well-being.
One lucky live participant will receive a copy of Megan’s book, Spoiled Right!
From Goodreads: "If kids are supposed to be spending less time on screens, what should they be doing instead? This book answers that question and gives parents and those who work with them a science-backed, developmentally-appropriate system for emphasizing alternative activities of childhood, which can incidentally reduce screen time and minimize the negative effects."
