Why it’s unrealistic to ban screens for children under two

Posted in Feed Play Love.
According to the Australian Government and the World Health Organisation, children under two should have zero screen time. But Dr Kate Highfield, General Manager of Professional Learning and Research Translation at Early Childhood Australia thinks that’s overly simplistic and unrealistic.

Kate explains how complex screen use in young children has become, and the difference between healthy and unhealthy screen time. 

Kate has more information on screens and the under-twos at the Early Childhood Australia blog. Dr Kristy Goodwin’s website can be found here.
