In today’s digital age, finding ways to engage children in screen-free activities is becoming increasingly important. Kailan Carr, the owner of Quiet Book Queen and Crafts in Between, has made it her mission to promote this. In a recent interview on the Girls That Create Podcast, Carr shared her insights on the significance of screen-free play and its impact on children’s development. Carr is the author of the children’s book Screens Away, Time to Play.
Carr’s story is one of transformation. She started her career as an elementary school teacher, passionate about nurturing young minds. However, she soon realized the growing influence of screens on children’s lives and the need for alternative activities. This led her to embark on a new path, becoming the Quiet Book Queen.
During the interview, Carr emphasized the importance of screen-free activities in fostering creativity and imagination in children. She highlighted how excessive screen time can hinder a child’s development and shared her insights on early childhood education philosophies.
Carr also discussed the significance of open conversations with educators and parents about the role of screens in the classroom and at home. By engaging in dialogue, she believes we can collectively find ways to balance technology and traditional play.
