New year, new guidelines?

Parents, educators and all those concerned about kids are waiting for new guidelines on screen time, expected this year from the American Academy of Pediatrics. (AAP)

Since 2011, when the AAP decreed, “No screen time for kids younger than age two,” parents have fought a seemingly loosing battle against the increased role of screens in everyday life.

The world is different in 2016 than it was in 2011. It’s time for a thoughtful reality check. (And while AAP is re-thinking screens, how about new guidelines on how long kids need car seats, too?)
