Experts: Parents Often At Fault When Kids Become Hooked On Electronic Media.

The New York Times (7/13, Brody) “Well” blog reported that parents can often be blamed “directly or indirectly when children and teenagers become hooked on electronic media, playing video games or sending texts many hours a day instead of interacting with the real world and the people in it.” Now, “experts in child development” are suggesting “ways parents can prevent or rectify the problem before undue damage occurs,” such as “thinking twice before using a mobile device when with their children,” checking email when the youngsters are in bed or are not around, and not using “devices when the family dines out.”
