Parents: It’s time to power down the electronic devices. This is according to new recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) but will parents heed the message? The Environmental Health Trust (EHT), a group promoting safer phone use, applauds AAP recommendations urging parents to ban electronic media during mealtimes and after bedtime as part of a comprehensive “family media use plan.” The influential new guidelines recognize the need to protect the young brain from round-the-clock use of digital devices and electronic media, which includes everything from television to texting and other social and anti-social activities.
