Karl Fisch offers what I think is exactly the right comment about going screen-free: "I am not saying this is always a bad idea and, for some folks, this is probably a good thing. But that's the key idea, it's good for 'some' folks. But I worry that this is another case of the "adults" suggesting a one-size-fits-all solution in the hopes of solving a complicated problem with a simple solution." Instead, he writes, we should think about doing the hard but necessary work of teaching people how to use media safely. See also Five Rebuttals to *that* Smartphone Article in the Atlantic.
