On: Should babies and toddlers watch television? 
Should babies and toddlers watch television (Talk Summary)


Parents from all over the world have been raising many questions since the ruling body of French television banned all television aimed at viewers under the age of 3 in 2008. Their statement, that was based on thorough research, read: “Television viewing hurts the development of children under 3 years old and poses a certain number of risks, encouraging passivity, slow language acquisition, over-excitedness, troubles with sleep and concentration as well as dependence on screens”.

Today, 7 years later, children are half as likely to be diagnosed with attention problems in France, compared to kids growing up in America and South Africa.

Lizette gives practical answers to questions such as, “Why is television not compatible with the developmental needs of babies and toddlers?” and “How can background television harm my child if he isn’t paying attention to it?”

This presentation offers clear and understandable explanations for the short and long-term impact of television on babies and toddlers, as well as the impact of high paced television on older children. More than anything else, Lizette leaves parents energized with a new appreciation for the “real world” and a better understanding of how everyday interactions build intelligence and character in children.
