National Screen Free Week (April 28 - May 5) is a time to unplug from screen-based entertainment and let your imagination run wild. Judy Stoffel , the author of #Look Up: A Parenting Guide to Screen Use, was on the Cory Hepola Show on WCCO-AM in Minneapolis on April 29.
#LookUp is a very well researched book that provides parents with insight into the dangers kids who get too much screen time face. Among the findings revealed in the book: screen use can be addicting for children, much like drug use and gambling is for adults; screen use can disrupt sleep patterns, cause memory problems, IQ declines, anxiety and depression; and Silicon Valley executives who are aware of the way cell phones and tablets have been engineered don’t let their own kids use them.
Just last week, the World Health Organization came out with some important recommendations regarding screen time and youngsters. WHO is recommending no screen time for children one and younger. In addition, for kids between 1 and 2, sedentary screen time such as watching TV or videos and playing video games is not recommended. With children aged 2 to 4, “sedentary screen time should be no more than 1 hour; less is better,” the WHO advises, encouraging caregivers to be “engaging in reading and storytelling” instead, just as in younger age groups.
Judy Stoffel is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), business professional, author, and mother. Stoffel grew up in La Crosse, Wisconsin and currently lives in Chanhassen, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis, with her husband and 15-year-old son.
