Hot off the press: “Media Diet” for Children

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:

For 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.
