I came across this while appearing to waste time on the Internet – turns out I wasn’t! I find all of these to be true, in my medical and parental opinion. (I’ve had too many days off for this holiday. I promise to post something actually pertaining to pediatrics very soon!)

    I must clarify, because the post to which I link appears to condone sitting your kid in front of an iPad and going on with your life – that’s NOT the case! The iPad is a fantastic tool for learning and entertainment, but only when used with parental supervision and involvement! It is a tool in a much broader toolkit – not to be used as a sole means of “distracting” a child. OK, now I feel better. ~Dr. Mc
