      Reposting this article again because this is exactly the types of conversations I wanted to hear about as I seek to have kids in the next couple years. Very sad and difficult situation for the parents and children. Parents have to model appropriate screen time to their kids and do their best to safeguard their kids from the addiction of screens.

      This is all so overwhelmingly sad. I feel for the parents and kids - a really really difficult problem.
