The quantity and quality of media children and teens consume should change with their age, according to new guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics. The organization also says parents should oversee children’s media consumption and educate them about proper media engagement. “The big picture message is that parents have a huge role to play as guides and mentors for their young children about what technology means,” said Jenny Radesky from U-M’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, who led the crafting of the new guidelines for young children.
