The Pros & Cons of Children’s Media Device Usage

If you have read me for any length of time, you know that I am not a big fan of television for kids. I am a “mafia dad,” a name given to me by my teenage daughter, for collecting, monitoring and restricting technology use in our house. If you can believe it, during most of my kids’ early years, we didn’t even have one single television in our home. (We do have one in the living room now, but we were television free for years.)

The results, as I have preached before, were an increase in literacy and higher grades among my children. My five-year old read 1000 books before Kindergarten and my 11-year-old skipped Kindergarten and went straight into a 1st grade Spanish Immersion. But taking that into consideration, have I gone too far? Is there a balance and good use of technology and television?

To answer these questions, I was given a great infographic. With their permission, I wish to share, study, and discuss its findings with you. Enjoy!
