What Screen Time and Screen Media Do To Your Child’s Brain and Sensory Processing Ability

It’s a scene we’re sure you’ve witnessed again and again:

A family is sitting in a restaurant having dinner. The four year old is clearly fed up with sitting, and starts to complain, jump on her seat or run around.

What happened? Her father handed her his iPhone.
