A Conversation with the author of Taking Back Childhood

Are children being exposed to screens too early? - a conversation with Taking Back Childhood by Nancy Carlsson-Paige and mother of artist Matt Damon. 

I like what she says about what children should be doing instead....

"The fact that they are spending more time looking at screens instead of engaged in robust outdoor play, interacting with other kids, spontaneous negotiating and figuring out problems in the real world with other kids, means they are not learning some of the vital lessons that came naturally to children in the past. Screen time is rapidly changing what children learn and don't learn."
