Ah, The Allure of the Screens 

By  Colleen Mallory

I stumbled upon this TED Talk while searching for some talks to share with my children. I was actually looking for a talk that would confirm that too much screen time is not a good idea. It is summer after all, and I am trying to encourage my children to go outside and enjoy the sun. The allure of the screens is all around us and so darn convenient. I fall prey to this as well… Do you have a question? Look it up on your phone. Need a phone number? Look it up on your phone. Want to book some travel while sitting in the passenger seat of the car? No problem, grab your iPad and book your travel while traveling! It is so easy to spend all of our time staring at a screen and you know what, sometimes it even feels productive. This talk puts things in perspective!
