Managing Home Media

There is so much to running a home and I think managing media in the home is one of the most difficult responsibilities, especially if you have children at home. The above photo is of our media center at Bunny Bungalow. The little flat screen is usually in a closet, as we have chosen to have no cable at the Bungalow and view only a couple of videos on the weekend. As a speech therapist, I recommend no screen time for children under three who have developmental delays and media in moderation for all others. The following sites offer excellent, research-based advice on in-home media for your family.

The British Medical Journal

Center for Screen-time Awareness

American Academy of Pediatrics

National Institutes of Health
