A conversation with Dr. Shimi Kaur Kang to learn how to treat screens like food: consume healthy tech, limit junk tech, and eliminate toxins. Between video games, scrolling on phones, socializing on Zoom, and online learning, children spend far more time on screens than before the pandemic. It has been an unprecedented moment in history where children have spent more time indoors than outdoors. Psychologists are alerting parents and educators that there will be periods of epic withdrawal once schools, activities, and social life return to normal.
