Hi! I'm Marcie - one of Platein28's co-creators. Educational programming has always been so important to me...and now my family. I approach the issue of children's screen time as an educator, with almost 10 years working in educational technology. And as a mom, what I recommend for your children is the same I recommend for mine. I hope your find these suggestions helpful!
