Pediatricians recommend an allowable time for children for screen time based on their age. We know screens are extremely addictive too, they shape and influence our children’s minds. Young infants’ brains are still developing, and parents are encouraged to give a balance of screen and play for their children and use screens only as a tool not as a substitute for social engagement. “If it is educational television and its well-designed TV, it’s not so bad for kids. And in fact, can very much help under-resourced children,” says Kathy Hirsh-Pasek of the Temple University Infant Language Laboratory.
