Children’s Exposure to Electronic Media

Children’s Exposure to Electronic Media

The American Academy of Pediatrics has modified its recommendation regarding the use of electronic media for children under the age of two years. 

Beginning in 1999, the organization discouraged parents from allowing such young children to be exposed to electronic media; however, the agency recently lifted that recommendation and instead acknowledged that some media exposure to high-quality programming can have educational value for children as young as 18 months. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) specifically referenced “Sesame Street” and children’s programming provided by PBS as an example of such programming. AAP also stressed that parents should watch these programs with their children and refrain from using the programs as electronic babysitters.
