Reckoning With Pandemic Screen Time

Download Audio

Parents used to fret about screen time and how to keep kids off the internet and TV. Then came the pandemic.

Between remote schooling, virtual social lives, and parents trying to balance work and home — often from home — we've spent the last year essentially enforcing the internet on kids. So, what will this mean for this young generation?

We speak with Dr. Andrea Spencer, a child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist at Boston Medical Center and assistant professor of psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine. We also hear from Quiana Agbai, a Boston parent, entrepreneur, and author of the blog and Instagram account "Harlem Lovebirds."

This segment aired on June 10, 2021.
