Is screen exposure harming our kids?
So, although it is too early to say definitively that screen exposure is harmful to children’s speech and language development, it is worth reminding ourselves of what we do know about setting children up for early communication success.

This can take the form of general, everyday chatter – talking about the groceries being selected in the supermarket, commenting on the antics of other children and their dogs while visiting the local park, and so on.
