Caregivers express concern for mobile device impact on child development

April 27, 2015

SAN DIEGO — Caregivers reported a high degree of concern regarding mobile device use among their children, citing reservation of its impact on social, emotional and behavioral development, according to survey data presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting.

“Tech for young children is evolving faster than scientific research can study its effects, and this study helps pediatric providers understand the experience and concerns of a diverse group of parents, so that we can give them the most relevant, and hopefully helpful, guidance possible,” Jenny Radesky, MD, FAAP, assistant professor of pediatrics at the Boston University School of Medicine, said in a press release.
