To Swipe or not TWO Swipe?

Recently, I was able to catch up on some of the reading I have wanted to do since December. I hate to admit it but life gets full and some things seem to find their way to my back burner.


As the Early Childhood Coordinator with the Food & Fitness Initiative I am always interested in articles and books related to early childhood and development. I have been a child advocate for more fruits and veggie consumed; fewer sweetened beverages sipped; more play time (especially outdoors) and last but certainly not least – very limited screen time for the youngest children.


In an old issue for the Cedar Rapids Gazette, I came across an article by Lisa Rapaprot regarding kids navigating touch screens. I would like to share this article with you. I know we can’t deprive our children to technology since that is the way the world is communicating and educating these days. However, in the article there are three important things to consider when allowing your young children to use a touch screen.


Please take a few minutes to discover what those 3 things are. They are simple, easy and could make a world of difference in your child’s development let alone your relationship.
