About This Workshop

Screen time is increasing rapidly, and parents are wondering, how much is too much?  This class will share the current screen time recommendations for young children and address why limiting screen time is important. We’ll offer guidelines for choosing high quality media as well as alternatives to the virtual babysitter. 

After this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand how young children learn
  • Explore current screen time trends and recommendations
  • Discuss negative effects of screen time
  • Describe “technoference”
  • Identify positive screen time decisions
