Kids and screens

Two Friends with a Tablet

How does an iPad given to a child influence how many friends they'll have later in life? What does giving a child a television in their bedroom have to do with their weight? How can a game on a mobile phone cause delays in language development? How can certain digital tools actually increase creativity and imagination?

Research on kids and screens seeks to determine what happens to a child's normal development when technology is added. What considerations should caregivers have about the device itself, the content or programming, the amount of time a child is permitted engage with a screen?  

By looking at the relationship between kids and screens caregivers can understand and plan for a parenting approach that's right for their family.
