What kind of digital parent are you?

In: , , , , ,

My recent piece for The Atlantic, Parents: Reject Technology Shame, tackles the question of how to raise kids in a digital world. Data from more than 10,000 North American parents shows that they are deeply divided on this question, and that there are three distinct approaches to navigating technology and managing screen time.

Which of these three parenting styles do you follow in your family? This infographic shares some of the highlights from my Atlantic story so that you can recognize your own approach.
