Video games and digital media have become one of the most favorite play activities for our children, and digital media has infused far into their (and our) daily lives. Parents and providers express a lot of concern about the effects of violent or suggestive content of video games and digital media on their children. However, existing research has not been able to conclusively establish any such link. Instead, findings reveal the several circumstances of digital media access to be associated with overall wellbeing of children. In this program, Atilla Ceranoglu, MD, will share tips on how to help your child build good digital media habits while playing their favorite video games, social media outlets, or the internet.
