Internet Safety and Technology for Preschoolers and Kindergarteners

Web Safety for Young Children

Finding appropriate TV shows for preschoolers and kindergarteners seems an easy Tech problem; it just takes some planning. Our Tech Safety parenting articles will help

As a parent you want your kids to have the right experiences and that goes for watching TV and DVDs. It's really tough sometimes to decide what's appropriate. What do you do and how can you know you're making the right viewing choices for your kids? It's not easy, but with a little effort, you can make a significant impact on your child's viewing.

As parents, the sad truth is we let our kids watch too much TV. On the average, a child in the U.S. watches 3 to 4 hours of TV a day. The recommendation for a preschool child according to the American Academy of Pediatricians is not more than 2 hours a day. It can be hard to limit TV for the very fact that parents unfortunately use TV time to get a rest from the kids. There's nothing wrong with getting a much needed rest from the kids, but it's just not in the best interests of your child to be watching even 2 hours a day.
