We don’t yet know what the long-term effects are of kids spending so many hours in front of screens. Many parents struggle to set reasonable boundaries around screen time, and some seem to have given up the fight.

In this episode, Marty West talks with Naomi Schaefer Riley, the author of a new book, Be the Parent, Please: Stop Banning Seesaws and Start Banning Snapchat, about the challenges of limiting screen time for our kids and why parents might want to try harder.

Read an excerpt of the book here, and a review of the book here.
