Liked A Study of 1 Million Teenagers Reveals This Much Screen Time a Day Leads to the Happiest Kids (Inc.com)
The key is to not just say, but do. Offer more attractive alternatives. And don't just encourage other activities; actually get involved. Do things your kids like to do. Take them places they like to go. Help them learn a sport. Help them learn to play an instrument. Make it easy for friends to visit, and for them to visit friends -- in real life, not virtually.

Liked Screen Time by Tom Woodward (bionicteaching.com)
Screen time isnโ€™t a single thing. Itโ€™s an insane range of things. Thereโ€™s lots of screen time that is of Twinkie quality but there are many other options. If I read a book on a device is it screen time or is that reading? If Iโ€™m coding for an hour? Editing video? Video chat with my parents? When we reduce things to this extent we end up doing things that ignore the actual problem.
