Feedback at 5:00: Do You Allow Your Young Children "Screen Time?"

Posted: Updated:

Monday's Feedback at 5:00:

Children are definitely growing up with some quickly developing technology, much if it claiming to change the way and the pace at which they learn.

A children's advocacy group is accusing two companies of misleading parents about the educational benefits of some apps designed for babies.

The app from Fisher Price is for children as young as six months old.

It claims to teach them how to count and identify numbers.

But the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends keeping children under the age of two away from electronic screen time, because they are not engaged in social activity.

For tonight's Feedback at 5:00: Do you have apps for your small children, and do you limit their screen time, on all devices from tablets to television?
