MILWAUKEE -- The rules have been relaxed. Our child development expert, Jessica Lahner of Carroll University, joins Real Milwaukee with the recently revamped screen time guild-lines for kids.
The American Academic of Pediatrics (AAP) recently announced an update of their 'no screen time before 2' guidelines
Almost all children ages 0-4 have used a mobile device. Most 2-year-olds use on a daily basis.
Statistics stand regardless of family SES.
18 months and younger: Still no screens
15 months -2 years.: Only high-quality media with adult interaction/support
2-5 years: 1 hr./ day of high-quality media
