No. I'm a pediatric speech language pathologist and I"m just going to throw this out there: we have a whole new generation of kids who do not know how to play because they are constantly in front of a screen...tv, wii, ipad, smart phone, pc, gameboy whatever, it doesnt matter. And guess how/where language and speech development happens? YEP, through PLAY. The very very best thing you can do for your child is encourage, promote and PROVIDE a screen free childhood. So in that regard, please look at ALL the screens your child has access to and limit accordingly.
