In 2007, Bill Gates, the former CEO of Microsoft, implemented a cap on screen time when his daughter started developing an unhealthy attachment to a video game. He also didn’t let his kids get cell phones until they turned 14.
Steve Jobs, revealed in a 2011 New York Times interview that he prohibited his kids from using the newly-released iPad. “We limit how much technology our kids use at home,” Jobs told reporter Nick Bilton.
Other techies who limit screen time for their kids include Sundar Pichai, (CEO of Google’s parent company), Evan Spiegel (Snapchat CEO) and Silicon Valley elite schools which are noticibly low-tech.
Real human interaction and teachers are better than screen interaction.
