On April 10, Lisa Guernsey gave a presentation to the Falls Church PTA on what the latest science is telling parents and educators about the benefits and drawbacks of screen media for children, ages 0 to 8. The presentation was based in part on new research in Screen Time: How Electronic Media -- From Baby Videos to Educational Software -- Affects Your Young Child (Basic Books, 2012).
