The AAP has revised its recommendations regarding screen time for children and there are 4 main takeaways:
– Video chat does not count as screen time
– Screen time is ok for children 15 months and older as long as a parent is engaged with the child while watching the screen
– Children aged 2-5 should have a max of 1 hour of screen time per day
– Sesame Workshop and PBS kids can be trusted to have evidenced based educational media for children
