Keep one or more days screen-free each week. This takes fo­cus off screen time as a de­fault ac­tiv­ity.

Have screen-free parts of house. Keep screens in pub­lic parts of home, not bed­rooms. Ap­plies to par­ents too.

Have chil­dren earn screen time, by co-op­er­at­ing in­clud­ing get­ting off-screen when asked.

Lead by ex­am­ple. Chil­dren are in­flu­enced by what we do much more than by what we say.
