My kids enjoyed generous amounts of screen time this summer. Between summer vacation, short and long road trips, and getting their own tablets, they’ve had more than I’d like to admit.

But since a new school year has started, other things are demanding our time and energy (homework, soccer practice, school events, etc.). I’m using screen time as more of a reward when my kids complete other responsibilities, in combination with plenty of time outdoors. Fall is a perfect opportunity to re-visit family screen time and media rules. Here are some great tools to help.
