LIM­IT­ING SCREEN TIME FOR YOUR KID? IT’S HARDER THAN IT LOOKS

Apple Magazine - - Summary -

It is Sat­ur­day morn­ing, and 10-year-old Henry Hai­ley is up at the crack of dawn. Still in PJs, his mi­cro­phone-equipped head­phones glow­ing blue in the dim base­ment, he fix­ates on the pop­u­lar on­line game “Fort­nite” on a large screen.

“What?! Right as I was about to fin­ish it, I died,” he calls out dis­ap­point­edly to his friend Gus, a fel­low fifth-grader play­ing the game from his home just a few blocks away. “Dude, I should NOT have died.”

The dig­i­tal bat­tles re­sume, and Henry’s en­thu­si­asm never wanes. Would he play all day if his par­ents let him? “Prob­a­bly,” he con­cedes with a slight grin.
