Good news for parents
Good news for parents!
It’s tough being a parent, and most of us have used the television or a smartphone or an iPad to keep our babies or toddlers occupied for a few minutes so we could start dinner, clean something up or simply go the bathroom in peace.
Up until now we’ve been made to feel a bit guilty for doing so, since the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that children under 2 not be allowed to have any screen time at all. Now parents can breathe a little because the AAP has just changed that recommendation, but there’s a catch.
Parents everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief now that the American Academy of Pediatrics has said that screen time before the age of 2 can be ok.
