How Much Screen Time Is OK For Kids?

Most of us are either in front of a computer, tablet or smartphone for huge parts of our waking hours. As adults, we’re able to set boundaries for ourselves — sometimes, at least  —for how much of the technology we need or can handle.

But what about our children, especially the youngest ones? How many hours is OK when it comes to screen time?

Ed Finn of Arizona State University's Center for Science and the Imagination wrote about that in Slate recently, and The Show talked with him.

Finn started the conversation by sharing his perspective on whether parents are the problem.
