I am a Biblical counselor in Raleigh, NC. I have over 30 years experience but I need some help.
I have parents that are concerned about “screen time” of children from age of 9 months to 18 years of age. What information do you have on that topic? One such mother has a 20 month old daughter and mom works from home so she uses the TV movies to occupy her daughter’s time. At meal time if the child gets fussy mom will put her cell phone on the table and the child watches quietly. Mom has been doing this since the child was 5 months old.
This child looks like she is frozen to the screen. She is very resistant to any physical touch unless she is in the mood for it. She will often not respond to the grandparent or others in the family. One grandparent is concerned that mom is conditioning this child for anti social issues. What do you have on screen time?
