New app to teach kids about how much 'screen time' is too much
A new app aims to teach kids about how much "screen time" is just too much.
The two-part app is an interactive e-book and game offering parents an educational tool and a game to teach their children about learning to step back from the screen, the Washington times reported.
The app tells the story of two young brothers - Ash and Ollie - who talk about their experiences balancing digital and real-world play, as well as frustrations with their parents over their screen limits. (The app advises half-hour stints, at max.)
Throughout the e-book, kids tap and collect hidden objects, which help them in the app's game, Rocket Racer, which is an easy tap-to-navigate game asking kids to collect stars and avoid clouds on the way.
