Watch out. Research shows screentime can be a real brain drain.

Dimitri Christakis explains his research in this TEDx lecture “How TV Affects the Brains of Young Children” His study shows that too much exposure at a young age can be detrimental to the brain’s development. Constructive, interactive play and exploration literally helped build the brain in their study. “We need more real time play today.”  Children, at young ages, need more time playing with real objects and plenty of social interaction to help develop their brains and language.
