Screen-Time: a Conversation with Jean Rystrom

Leave a comment

I recently interviewed Jean Rystrom, National Clinical Lead for Screen-Time Reduction at Kaiser Permanente, for the Parenting in Portland newsletter.

“We have a problem with screen time,” declares my husband.

I glance up from my iPad and mumble, “I know. I just have to respond to this comment first.”

Ten minutes later, I wander out to the living room to find my husband scrolling through his iPhone, while our 13-year-old is doing the same. Our 11-year-old is on an iPad, our seven-year-old is on the laptop, and our two-year-old is looking over her shoulder.

My husband is right. We all have a problem with screen time. But what to do about it?

Please read the full interview here:
