Parents As Teachers Events
Technology and Tots
It's a new world and technology is king!  It is not unusual to see toddlers with electronics in their hands, working the device like pros.  Technology has reshaped and redefined how we communicate, entertain and even play.
What do the experts recommend?
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no more than 1-2 hours of screen time per day for children age 2 and above.  Children should have 2-3 hours of active physical play.  It is recommended that human interaction is better than screen time and should never be replaced with technology.
What parents can do:
Worried about the amount of screen time your child is getting?  Consider these strategies:
* Get the TV out of the children's bedrooms
* Talk about it
* Evaluate appropriate technology by age
* Institute "tech breaks"
* Set aside "sacred time"
*Encourage "healthy" technology
