As Pokémon Go takes California and much of the world by storm, many parents are faced with conflict as they appreciate the physical activity encouraged by the game but also worry about excessive screen time. Those dealing with these concerns in the context of a divorce can face further challenges if there are disagreements about limiting time with this game.
