Online Extension Extras Parenting Hour Screen Time for Young Children

March 19 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Screens are everywhere, and young children are spending more and more time in front of them. Screens and media can be a great way for children to learn, but may also have a negative impact on their development. This workshop will help participants learn about how screen time and other media exposure impacts children, learn
the screen time recommendations for infants, toddlers, and young children and understand ways to decrease screen time for young children.

Extension Extras Parenting Hour is a free online series of parenting workshops that provides guidance for parents of young children as they navigate the challenges, joys, and concerns of parenting.

Certificates for participation are provided upon completion of the class.

Participants have the option to attend and actively participate via computer, or an app on a tablet or smartphone. Attendees can also listen to the presentation via phone (by calling in).
