Screen Time Monitoring Apps and Programs

If your New Year’s resolution is to have fewer screens in your life- you’re not alone! I have heard from so many families (including my own) that a major goal of 2019 is to decrease screen time. The Screenagers Movie is not only an incredible documentary on screens in our culture, but also provides ongoing resources regarding technology. They just released their 2019 list of screen time management apps for parents and families looking for more control over technology. See below for a wide variety of management programs.

I ran across an interesting article the other day. You can read it here: We are raising a generation of deluded narcissists by Dr. Keith Ablow
