The first two years of your child’s life are especially important in the growth and development of her brain. During this time, children need positive interaction with other children and adults. This is especially true at younger ages, when learning to talk and play with others is so important.
Children ages 2 and under: Until more research is done about the effects of screen time on very young children, American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) strongly discourages television viewing for children ages two years old or younger, and encourages interactive play. Computers and mobile devices such as Smart Phones, iPads, and tablets also fall under the category of television viewing.
Older children: The American Academy of Pediatrics advises no more than one to two hours per day of educational, nonviolent programs, which should be supervised by parents or other responsible adults in the home.
