Screen time and the preschool brain

Screen time and the preschool brain
This study says it changes the structure of white matter. 

"In this cross-sectional study of 47 healthy prekindergarten children, screen use greater than that recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines was associated with (1) lower measures of microstructural organization and myelination of brain white matter tracts that support language and emergent literacy skills and (2) corresponding cognitive assessments."

Are we making delta's?
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity. 

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. Ozzy or Twain/take your pick

Solution:  Talk to your kids.

As a homeschooler.....limiting screen time is difficult. There are so many fantastic apps that, in addition to the usual youtube time..I've got my kids staring at a screen from sunup to sundown. It would be a shame if that was fucking with their wee little minds.

No it isn't.  It's be a tremendous inconvenience to you, but it isn't difficult.

That solution is a bit extreme isn’t it?

Who wants to talk to kids??

No...it's pretty difficult Boru, lol. The apps generate time and reports that are required by the state..and are exactly what public school teachers put kids on. If I didn't do it, and god forbid some state employee came to see how my kids were doing..there would be trouble. If I ever want my kids to reconnect with the public system....say....for college, they have to have that body of record built.

Funny thing about home schooling..they don't just take a parents word for it. But thanks for playing, ya fucking cock. Wink

You clearly don’t have kids. 😝
