Excerpt of article by Leslie Barker | The Dallas Morning News
Maryam Morse and her husband formulated a plan for allotting their sons time to play video games and watch TV. The boys could do so, but only after reading, completing their homework and practicing the piano.
The boys loved the plan. Their parents, however, did not.
“We found they were racing through everything. They weren’t focused,” Morse says. “They were just going through the motions of what we’d consider enriching activities, just to get to the golden prize of screen time.”
Now, there’s no screen time Monday through Friday. None.
