The American Academy of Pediatrics has not only come out with recommendations for controlling use of digital media for our kids, but a new program and free online tool to help parents plan and execute those limits.  Today’s children grow up immersed in digital media, from social media and YouTube to video chatting, which has both positive and negative effects on healthy development depending on the age of the child and the qualities of the media. The nation’s largest group of pediatricians provides new set of recommendations and resources, including an interactive media use planning tool, to help families  learn about and control digital media in the lives of their children from birth to adulthood.
