A Dark Consensus About Screens and Kids Begins to Emerge in Silicon Valley
“On the scale between candy and crack cocaine, it’s closer to crack cocaine,” Mr. Anderson said of screens...

He has five children and 12 tech rules. They include: no phones until the summer before high school, no screens in bedrooms, network-level content blocking, no social media until age 13, no iPads at all and screen time schedules enforced by Google Wifi that he controls from his phone.
