Maureen Kelleher highlights key points from a Child Trends lecture led by Kristin Anderson Moore with Kathryn Hirsh-Pasek, Lisa Guernsey, and Rosemarie Truglio who give insightful recommendations for parents when using technology with children in this Fred Rogers Center blog post. She also reminds us that the NAEYC/Fred Rogers Center joint position statement states that

“children get the most from technology when it’s used intentionally and in ways that are appropriate for each child’s age, stage of development, and personal interests and needs. We recommend that if children younger than 2 years of age use media it should support interactions between children and their caregivers because we know from the research this is how infants and toddlers learn best.”
