Imperfect by CNA Insider - Am I a bad parent … if I give my toddler screen time?
Danial Shahrin, 29, and his wife had set out not wanting to give their 2-year-old any screen time. Then life got in the way, and TV became a convenient tool. But when Danial realised his son's speech was lagging behind his peers', he wondered if they’d done wrong by him. Is there really a link between screen time and speech delay?
And how can screen time be used beneficially? Some expert-recommended shows for toddlers and young children include: Ms Rachel - Toddler Learning Videos, Paisley’s Corner with Silly Miss Lily, Dora the Explorer and Sesame Street.
