The American Academy of Pediatrics just update their recommendations regarding media use by young children. Their just-released guidelines go right along with MGOL Technology Policy and fit right in with the new “Goose 2.0” training workshop. For example, here is their recommendation to parents:
- Parents can model effective “media diets” to help their children learn to be selective and healthy in what they consume. Take an active role in children’s media education by co-viewing programs with them and discussing values.
- Make a media use plan, including mealtime and bedtime curfews for media devices. Screens should be kept out of kids’ bedrooms.
- Limit entertainment screen time to less than one or two hours per day; in children under 2, discourage screen media exposure.
