    Screens are being a substitute for actual parenting. It's sad.

    Think of the amount of visual information their brains process when looking at screens. They focus on a screen that cycles through constant visual changes at a very rapid pace.

    This is so true. I remember when TV sped up flashing more many screens per minute. We sat in an inservice on it yrs ago and it was shocking. I read the above article, but nothing surprised me really. I think the only part I have not have already thought about is just how young some of these parents are letting babies use the screens. I have not seen it that much.
