Motherhood Meets Medicine


Jun 23, 2021

If you follow along on Instagram, you may know that limiting screen time is a huge passion of mine. We are living in a technology-driven world, and while there are many great things that come from it, there are also so many dangers - specifically when it comes to how it affects our relationships with ourselves and others. There are simple things that you can change to decrease screen time and increase your ability to be present and connect. 

 

Andrea Davis and I have a conversation around our experiences with technology and how we do, or don’t, incorporate it into daily life. Andrea guides us through having the tough conversations with your children around limiting time on devices and how that can really pay off in the long run.

 

Andrea Davis is a former secondary ed teacher turned screen-time-navigator. She is the founder of Better Screen Time where she shares family-tested ideas from the (tech) trenches as a mom of five. She is on a mission to help parents worry less about tech, and connect more with their kids. Andrea and her husband, Tyler, live in beautiful Hood River, Oregon where they love spending time outdoors as a family.

 

In this episode we discuss:

-The benefits of setting our devices aside

-Involving our spouse and kids in creating a tech plan

-Practical ways to talk to your kids about technology 

-Having the skill of self-awareness 

-What happens when we let our children be bored
