Review Calls For Further Investigation Into How Interactive And Mobile Media Affect Little Children

Reuters (12/30) reports that according to a review published online Dec. 29 in the journal Pediatrics, further investigation is needed into how interactive and mobile media are affecting infants, toddlers, and preschool children in the areas of language acquisition, learning, interpersonal skills and behavior. Currently, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children younger than two should avoid entertainment media and television. The authors of the review made the suggestion that physicians speak to parents about how their little ones are using interactive media and take part in media use with their youngsters.
