Your Wired Child
Technology in all of its forms is becoming more prevalent in our every day lives. From mobile phones to tablets and video games and social media, it’s extremely pervasive. For developed adults, we’ve come to adapt, but how does it affect your child’s development? Being that they were born into this tech obsessed world, their childhood is already the world of the Jetson’s when compared to ours. With advances in technology and our dependence on it, it is only natural for parents to be concerned.
Pedram talks with psychologist Richard Freed about the studied effects of technology on the developing brain. How much tech is too much and is there an acceptable amount of screen time for younger children? How can a parent best control the amount of time their children spends in front of the television or holding a tablet? Richard answers all these questions and more in the podcast. Listen above, or on iTunes.
