The Mom Effect

MIT Technology Review posted an article back in November headlined “Two studies lay the blame for childhood screen tie at moms’ feet.” One study appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Assn. (JAMA), the other was published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), The former used survey data to check on preschoolers screen time to see if World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines were being observed and the latter looked at how children adopt screen viewing habits.

MIT Tech Review notes, “Moms bear the brunt of the blame in these studies because that’s how this kind of research has always been done.” The article also goes on to note that not all screen time is the same; some is good, some not (as I noted in my post just prior to this one).

It’s a quick and interesting read.
