Screen Sense

Setting the Record Straight – Research-Based Guidelines for Screen Use for Children Under 3 Years Old pdf

Are screens bad for babies and toddlers? This is a critical question as the majority of young children—as young as 6 months—are using screen media, and parents are confused about what kind and how much media their children should be consuming. Unfortunately, research findings on screen media are rarely translated in a way that is useful to parents; and much of the guidance found in the popular media is based on ideology and not science.  

To fill the gap, ZERO TO THREE has developed Screen Sense: Setting the Record Straight—Research-Based Guidelines for Screen Use for Children Under 3 Years Old. This new free resource is an authoritative review of what is known about the effect of screen media on young children’s learning and development from birth to 3, and provides guidelines for screen use based on the evidence.
