Family Therapist Looking for Parents to Take His Screen Time Survey

From the Boston Globe Sunday magazine:

Family therapist Robert Pressman, who studies the influence of screen time and home dynamics on kids’ ability to learn, is looking for parents to take his survey. “We ran two studies between 2011 and 2013, and findings strongly suggested that the more screen time children have, the lower their grades,’’ says Pressman. “Now we’re looking to connect those dots about homework, screen time, routines, parenting styles, and more. We’re using the technology we’ve become concerned about to get the information: Parents can fill out a 10-minute survey at We believe there is going to be a negative correlation between the amount of screen time and grades, how a child gets along with others, and mood.”
