Docs to Parents: Keep the Internet Out of Kids' Bedrooms


  • The American Academy of Pediatrics issued an updated policy yesterday urging parents to keep laptops and smartphones out of kids' bedrooms, with one author saying "many parents are clueless" about the profound impact media exposure can have on their children. "This is the 21st century and they need to get with it," added Dr. Victor Strasburger, a University of New Mexico adolescent medicine specialist. "I guarantee you that if you have a 14-year-old boy and he has an Internet connection in his bedroom, he is looking at pornography." Consumption of media is now "the leading activity for children and teenagers other than sleeping," the policy says.
