Research about effects of Screen Time

Many thanks to Ann Schlesinger for pointing me to a new title: Into The Minds of Babes: How Screen Time Affects Children From Birth To Age Five. This book, aimed primarily at parents of young children, draws on dozens of scientific studies to explore the effects of television, computers, and other forms of screen entertainment on young children — both good and bad. Author Lisa Guernsey includes sometimes amazing statistics such as the fact that 39 percent of families keep the television turned on “at all times.” She also discusses the ramifications of screen time on children’s time for creative play, cognitive and emotional development, and physical health.
