Screen Time for Children with Baby Sign Language
With Baby Sign Language being a visual language is it okay to let your child watch the Baby Signing Time Videos?
What does the American Academy of Pediatrics say about screen time with infants and toddlers? Screen time is the number of hours a person spends each day in front of a computer, mobile device, or television, watching movies or playing video games. Our living rooms are filled with smart phones, tablets, iPods, computers, televisions, movies, gaming system, and more. As parents we wonder what we can do to manage and optimize our kids’ screen time. In 2016, The American Academy of Pediatrics released media guidelines for parents of infants and toddlers. The guidelines had not been updated since 1999, and much has changed since then. These guidelines, while welcome, did not specifically address signing, which encourages the kinds of parent-child interaction that the AAP recommends.
