The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends NO screen time (TV, DVDs, computers, video games, etc.) for children under two. After age two, young children should have only very limited and thoughtfully planned use of screens. These recommendations come as a result of screen time being linked to
· Delayed language acquisition
· Irregular sleep patterns
· Decrease in math scores and overall school achievement in later childhood
· Higher levels of aggression.
