Give Up Yer Aul Screens is a new Irish Times series as part of our Summer of Family initiative. Each Tuesday, Irish Times journalists with children of all ages will be writing and sharing their own tips for reducing screen time. We want you, our readers, to get involved too. Tell us your experiences and ideas – or simply vent about the struggle to banish screens from the bedroom and the dining table – using this form.

Give Up Yer Aul Screens: Share your suggestions

Screens may be a fact of life now, but they don’t have to take over our lives. If you want your family to be left to their own devices a little bit less this summer, keep an eye on Give Up Yer Aul Screens, which runs until August 20th. A selection of your responses may be published online, in print, or both.

Thank you.
