TV-Screen, Computer-Screen, iPad Screen, Smartphone-Screen. Screens are as close at hand as never before. Social workers, educators, and parents usually don’t like children to be sitting in front of an „LCD-Babysitter“. Is the problem how long children consume content from screens or is the question what content is consumed? The following infographic from Education News shows that the content makes the difference. Looking at TV consume depending on the content watched as children during age 3-5 (i.e. sesam street) boys found to be less aggressive in high school and girls were more likely to participate in extracurricular activities. Can these results be transferred to other media consume like social media (youtube) or games? You may also want ot have look here: Is Total Gadget Immersion Good or Bad for Kids? [INFOGRAPHIC]
