136: The Complicated Issue of Unlimited Screen Time

October 12, 2018

This week, I'm chatting about unlimited screen time. Is this a simple issue? If we let our unschooled kids have unlimited access to screens and trust them, will they learn to self-regulate their usage without any problems? Or is there more to discuss than that?

I'm sharing my story, Is It Really Okay to Let Unschooling Kids Have Unlimited Access to Screens and the Internet?

And I'm discussing the questions:

  • Will kids learn to self-regulate their screen usage?
  • Do adults have trouble self-regulating?
  • Should we respect our kids’ choices?
  • Why do we fear letting go of control?
  • What is sensible screen behaviour?
  • Is the Internet really addictive?
  • Is making screen rules a responsible thing to do?
  • Or is there a better way to help kids self-regulate their usage?
  • Do we have to do more than just step back and give our kids complete freedom to do what they want?
