Obesity has become a worldwide public health problem. Considerable research has shown that the media contribute to the development of child and adolescent obesity, although the exact mechanism remains unclear. Screen time may displace more active pursuits, advertising of junk food and fast food increases children's requests for those particular foods and products, snacking increases while watching TV or movies, and late-night screen time may interfere with getting adequate amounts of sleep, which is a known risk factor for obesity. Sufficient evidence exists to warrant a ban on junk-food or fast-food advertising in children's TV programming. Pediatricians need to ask 2 questions about media use at every well-child or well-adolescent visit: (1) How much screen time is being spent per day? and (2) Is there a TV set or Internet connection in the child's bedroom?
Apple: "Read all safety information below and operating instructions before using iPad to avoid injury." Printed copy of the safety information is provided with purchase. However, the manual is a small booklet of 3 1/4" x 5". The text is so small that they are practically illegible without magnifying glasses. For a legible copy, consumers have to look it up on the internet. Most parents and teachers never read it.
Children as young as three are showing signs of being unhappy with their appearance and bodies, a childcare charity has warned. Almost a third of nursery and school staff said they had heard a child label themselves as “fat” while 10 per cent said they had heard a child say they felt ugly. Nearly a quarter of those surveyed said they had “seen signs” children aged between three and five were “unhappy with their appearance or bodies” and this figure almost doubled to nearly half of six- to 10-year-olds.
Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves define Emotional Intelligence (EI) as the “ability to recognize and understand emotions in yourself and others, and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationships.” How has technology impacted EI, especially among digital natives?
A 2013 US study Zero to Eight found that 38% of children under 2 had experience using a mobile device and that two thirds of children aged 0 – 8 had access to a smart mobile device in the their home. They also found that since 2011, “almost twice as many children have used mobile media …and the average amount of time children spend using mobile devices has tripled”.
Mobile devices are everywhere and children are using them more frequently at young ages. The impact these mobile devices are having on the development and behavior of children is still relatively unknown. In a commentary in the journal Pediatrics, researchers review the many types of interactive media available today and raise important questions regarding their use as educational tools, as well as their potential detrimental role in stunting the development of important tools for self-regulation.
