With a Rebel Quell

“Parents are constantly present in their children’s lives physically, but they are less emotionally attuned.” Erika Christakis on The Dangers of Distracted Parenting: “When it comes to children’s development, parents should worry less about kids’ screen time—and more about their own.” (I make it a point to always return my kids’ emails within 3-5 business days.)

+ WaPo: “A small but growing number of behavioral scientists and former Silicon Valley developers have begun trying to counterprogram those news alerts, friend requests and updates crowding our waking hours. Increasingly, the rebel developers are using fire to fight fire — creating apps that try to put users back in control. They call their movement digital wellness.” (I’m addicted to digital wellness apps.)

+ CNN: WHO classifies gaming disorder as mental health condition.
