CityTV's Breakfast Television broadcast in Toronto, Canada, has interviewed Jennifer Deathe, Admissions Manager at Waldorf Academy -- a Pre-k through Grade 8 Waldorf school in Toronto.

During the broadcast,  How to encourage kids to focus on making human connections with Jennifer Deathe, Jennifer shares device-free activities for children and talks about managing screen time to prioritize human connection. 

Jennifer asks viewers to consider how they feel after binge-watching a Netflix show versus taking a hike in the woods and then reminds them that children feel those differences too, but need more guidance to balance their lives. She also spends time talking about good activities to replace screen time such as meal preparation and clean up,  nature walks and independent playtime even if children get bored.
