The fact that news media often pick up a study that seems to connect media use with negative behaviors is no surprise. What surprises me is that most of the studies that seem to show more positive associations between media use and children get so little coverage.
I hesitate to write about this because when I even tell just one other parent that we don't do media, I see the walls that can instantly go up. Am I judging them? Am I trying to convert? I truly am not.
