From April 29th to May 5th, we’re celebrating Screen Free Week!

The annual celebration, marked by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC), encourages families to turn off the screen and turn on life! The CCFC created Screen Free Week as a creative response to growing public heath concerns toward children’s unprecedented time using television, computers, video games and smart phones. The opportunity to unplug for a week across the nation gives families a chance to redefine their children’s media habits and also prompts us all to establish a healthier and more sustainable tradition of media consumption — both inside and out of the classroom!

Here’s to unplugging, unwinding and enjoying our time together!

How will you and your family celebrate Screen Free Week?
