For nearly five years Delaney has written weekly on topics related to the impact of screen time on today’s youth and how we can help kids, and ourselves, achieve a more balanced life. Ruston receives appreciative emails weekly from parents who use the TTTs to spark productive conversations with the youth in their lives.
