I was reading a newsletter from my Alma Mater today and ran across a blog by a professor at Linfield College called Media Mom, PhD. I have recently been more and more concerned about the effect of media and technology on our kids. Whether you are in the camp of “we can’t protect our kids from all technology and media so why try?” or the “take cover and shelter your kids from everything” camp, I think we have to at least try to be aware of the dangers of too much exposure to media and technology and what it is doing to our brains and the developing brains of our kids. I wanted to encourage you to read this very insightful blog by this Linfield Professor . I will be putting her on my lists of must read blogs!
