Ask the Mediatrician: Achieving a Healthy Balance in Your Child’s Media Diet
March 16th, 2017

How can families establish healthy habits when it comes to media use? Dr. Michael Rich, Director of the Center on Media and Child Health at Children’s Hospital in Boston, is a pediatrician, researcher, and father. Dr. Rich spoke to parents of young children, tweens, and teens on achieving a healthy balance in your child’s media diet.

Dr. Rich offered:

  • research-based answers to parents’ questions about children’s media use and implications for their health and development
  • tools to empower parents and caregivers to make better-informed choices on their children’s “media diets”
  • information and strategies that are balanced, practical, and based in scientific evidence

This event was presented by The Parent Connection and Bay Farm Montessori Academy.
