When reminiscing about your cherished childhood pastimes, you likely recall joyous moments of cycling through the neighborhood, playing at a friend’s house, or enjoying Saturday morning cartoons.

Has smartphone gaming taken precedence over pedaling to the playground? If these scenarios resonate, perhaps it’s time to contemplate a family-wide digital detox for a renewed focus on meaningful, off-screen experiences.
