Listen

GUESTS: AMY BLEAKLEY & DWIGHT GARNER

Parents are struggling to create rules about the amount of time their children spend on their smart phones, tablets, computers and in front of the television. As emerging products arrive on the market new research shows kids’ time in front of screens is often based on their parents’ watching habits. We’ll talk about media time in the home with DWIGHT GARNER, senior writer and book critic for The New York Times and AMY BLEAKELY, senior researcher at the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
