I thought that this was an article about politics, based on the title. Pleasantly surprised to learn that they meant it literally.

I have a very young son, and it has been my plan to try to keep him away from screens, but I have to confess that I don't really know how. We run so much of our house through our phones (lights, stereo, shopping, etc) that it's inevitable that I pull out my phone pretty often while I'm with him. I'm sure I'm inadvertently desensitizing him. I could do a better job, but it feels sort of inevitable that kids are going to be screen exposed way sooner than we'd all like.

The article is only telling people to send their kids outside more, not to reduce the screentime. So a good solution would be to buy your son a nintendo switch and send him outside to play.
