Are you wondering how television, videos, computers, and smart phone applications affect your toddler and preschooler? This workshop focuses on the effects of “screen time”—including television, videos, computer games, and smart phones—on young children. Parents will learn the risks of screen exposure, whether educational programs and games can truly enhance your child’s learning and development, and ways to establish a strong foundation for a healthy media diet as your child matures. We will discuss specific children’s programs, such as Sesame Street, Blues Clues, Barney, Arthur, and Dora the Explorer, and how to determine what types of programs are most suitable for young children.

 

FREE of charge, but please register.
