Screen time for kids has always been a hot topic. Lately I’ve seen a lot of strong opinions (going both directions) on Facebook in response to a recent Huffington Post article.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants under the age of 2 have absolutely no exposure to technology.

I’m sharing some of my thoughts on screen time for toddlers over on the Right Start Blog, along with some tips for making screen time work for you.
