I know, I know. Phones and tablets are great tool to keep your kids away from bothering you.
But we follow the 'No Screens Under 2' Rule from American Academy Of Pediatrics (AAP), we do not recommend parents to give their phones and tablets to kids and allow the kids to enjoy the small screens. So now AAP makes some updates on the 'No Screens Under 2' Rule. The new guidelines, especially for children aged 0 to 5, shift the focus from WHAT is on the screen to WHO else is in the room.
Live video chat with grandparents or families can be an exception. If parents are watching alongside with kids and repeat what the video says can help learning new words, but interaction with people is still important for language skills. If you want to learn more, please visit: American Academy Of Pediatrics Lifts 'No Screens Under 2' Rule, NPR.
So what are you going to do to keep your little ones busy, for this fall?
Just be creative and stay away from the screens.
