More screen time for little kids? Yeah, not what they need. Be a responsible parent and keep the devices away from developing brains.

Before books came out, people used to say
"Damn kids today with their heads all in books reading"

After books came out and radio was available, people said
"Damn kids, always listening to that music, go ready a book!"

Once TV came out, people said
"damn kids, gonna rot their brains with that tv, go listen to some music or read a book"

then computers came out and people said
"damn computers and internet, gonna make these kids all zombies and stay up all night, go read a book or lie in bed and listen to some music"

then tablets and phones came out and people said
"damn kids, always got their heads in those phones and tablets go do *anything else*"

point?

the point is, there will always be new medium and rather than blindly saying kids shouldnt be using it, we should think about whether they are using it for valuable purposes and to how much degree we allow them to explore on their own, but not become unable to deal with anything else.

Sorry, but the research and expert opinions don't jibe with your beliefs. https://www.naeyc.org/sites/defau...gy_WEB.pdf

That's just scratching the surface. Screen time and young brains is a bad combination. Please take the time to educate yourself.

please take the time you educate yourself on forum software

please learn to quote those you are replying to. i only randomly came back her by chance, else you will never be able to engage in a dialogue with anyone as no one will know you've responded to them.

oh and go educate yourself:
https://gizmodo.com/we-were-wrong...1788065909

first off the notion of "limiting screen time" is idiotic. screen time generically means nothing. a young mind could be looking at a screen and learning to read - no different than if someone forced them to stare at a book

do you think there is some magic behind an LCD screen that makes u dumber than staring at a piece of recycled paper?

obviously if you let your kid watch dumb cartoons 24/7 it doesnt really matter if its in front of a tv or tablet, they will likely never be as smart as the kid reading or simply doing anything but that.

my point however was not about screen vs not screen time, but rather older generations always seem to criticize whatever newer ones are doing that they didn't do

i.e. "damn kids today, always inside, no one is outside playing anymore."
^ granted there is some legitimacy with respect to physical health with that, but my point is more about the fact that older people always think newer generations need to do what they did...and time and time again, we've shown this to actually NOT be good for the children in terms of adapting to their generations future.

Ignorance is bliss, apparently.
