I agree that screen time should be postponed until a later age. I would rather replace screen time with music listening. Music is a powerful learning tool as it can get teach listening skills, empathy, self soothing, I believe it can increase focus and improve language skills as well. We are social beings, the ability to connect socially is extremely important to our development and even our survival. Screen time blurs the lines of reality and I personally believe screen time can reduce the magic and learning potential of imagination! Children are still grasping the concept of object permanence as well, so I feel it’s best to withhold screen time for a while.
