A well-worthwhile read is Always Connected: The new digital media habits of young children by Aviva Lucas Gutnick et al. My own take is that yet again we are seeing the increasingly potent new technologies relentlessly pushing media towards the very same cradle where we nurture, protect, and love our young infants. Increasingly more kids are increasingly rapidly adapting to and experiencing media at younger ages, even as research findings have not yet cooled the fevered consumption of technology in families.
The time has come for overwhelmed parents, backed by professionals, to become empowered, and educated, and have the tools to manage the flow of technology to benefit family life and growing children.
