TECH-savvy kids now spend more time online or watching TV than they do at school and should be put on a “media diet” of two hours a day, pediatricians warned.
Technology is becoming a kind of “co-parent;” too much screen time is impeding childhood development; and parents’ obsession with their devices is harming communication with their children and even fracturing families.
Just a quick and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who has showed their support for Planet Earth Kids Club!
Here’s the first illustration from our children’s book “Planet Earth Kids Club”. A book for kids who are addicted to screens (aren’t we all?).
Few days from now, the crowd-funding project will be on-air. We will keep you updated.
