Every year in late April or early May people — ESPECIALLY YOUNG PEOPLE — are urged to get away from screens and do activities during “SCREEN-FREE WEEK.” Life is much more than addiction to screens. Get outside! Enjoy nature! Connect face-to-face with people! Read books! Work in the yard or garden! Do volunteer work! Live! Say no to persistent commercialism and distraction and superficiality!
There are Screen-Free Week events all around the world, at libraries, schools, and museums, like the Original Children’s Playhouse Museum in Frederick, MD, which is partnering with 7 elementary schools to help 3,000 kids unplug and play! See http://www.screenfree.org/2018-screen-free-week-events/
