Gabriella Joustra: Screen-time Practice in Family | All Together #19

Technology has become an integral part of our daily lives, and the issue of screen time has become increasingly prevalent in families. It is not only adults who are dependent on their gadgets, but also children who have grown up with smartphones for their entertainment. This dependence on technology can impact the dynamic of relationships within families, and it is important to find a balance between technology usage and daily life activities.

In this episode of All Together, host Dina Sargeant was joined by Gabriella Joustra, host of the Home Organization Science podcast, Room by Room, and the Household Management Science podcast, On the House to discuss screen time and its impact on her family.

Gabriella shared her struggle with addiction to her smartphone and how it negatively impacts her life at home. She suggested scheduling times for phone usage, prioritizing important activities, and setting boundaries for app usage through features like time limits and notifications. They also discussed how the pandemic has affected screen time usage, making it acceptable to often use phones due to being at home all the time. Gabriella also talked about her passion for roller skating, and highlighted how roller skating is a great way to have fun, exercise, and socialize without the use of a phone.
