Winter scene with children sledding.

As the snows whirl and the winter rains fall, we all face a familiar conundrum; what to do when we’re stuck indoors. The temptations of screens can be profound in that particular scenario, especially for kids with time on their hands. Good screen management starts with the basics like standard iPhone parental controls and family rules about how much device use is appropriate. Here are some more ways to fight off the temptation to spend snow days staring at screens.

A new year often inspires us to make a change, especially around how much time we spend on screens. If you want your family to put down the tablets and do more together, try making these five family resolutions.
