The 2020 pandemic has parents everywhere wondering….

How much screen time is too much?

The parks are all closed; play dates are cancelled; and it’s too hot to play outside. Looks like it’s time to watch a movie…again.

We’ve all been there. Even in our pre-COVID lives, parents sometimes just need a few minutes to cook, clean, or even take a shower. These are usually the times when we throw on a TV show or pull up Minecraft to give ourselves a few minutes of peace and quiet.
