Must parents keep Interactive Media away from Kids?

5 years ago

The NAEYC & The Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning & Children's Media joined forces releasing their most powerful statement yesterday, essentially stating that screen technology for young children should not be vilified.

The statement goes on to explain that “our world and technology are rapidly changing”, producing new powerful and imaginative tools, which are not going to (nor should they) leave us. While we must always pay strict attention to the quality of our content, it's never been more important to educate society on how to properly utilize such tools to benefit our children.

As a creator of thought provoking, quality content for children, I’ve been living that message to inspire children for almost twenty years...so it’s nice to have such power supporting my beliefs.

It's about education.

Not pointing fingers.
