The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued new recommendations about children's screen time and cell phone radiation exposure. Check out early childhood educator Dr. Roxana Marachi's response
BioInitiative.org co-editor Cindy Sage, MA advises that "Wireless screen exposure is worse than wired. Skyping Grandma and Grandpa on a wired computer is far less a potential health issue. Wired Skype gives electronic access for communicating, but without the pulsed RF in childrens' little faces and hands."
Pediatrician Dr. Toril Jelter observes that "the AAP now offers families a template for creating a media plan they can develop together and print and stick on the fridge. It encourages reducing entertainment screen time from two hours to one hour per day. Make sure you get some unplugged time. Families benefit from having dinner together without electronic interruption. And keep electronics out of the bedrooms." www.electronicsilentspring.com/calming-behavior
