New electronic media use guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics

The American Academy of Pediatrics and our pediatricians have long supported electronic media use guidance by parents. These recommendations have just been updated to address the dramatic changes in this area that we have seen in recent years. We encourage you to take a moment to look over the summaries of theses recommendations for infants, toddlers and preschoolers and for school-aged children and adolescents. Of special importance, we strongly encourage each family to develop a Family Media Use Plan using the tool provided by the Academy. 

Please talk with your pediatrician about these important matters at your next regular check-up in the office!
