Disruption of important responsive face-to-face parent-child interactions through family use of media ...

„The importance of responsive face-to-face parent-child interactions in the development of language, cognitive, and self-regulation abilities during early childhood is undisputed. These crucial daily interactions can be disrupted through family use of media. For example, adults utter fewer words, respond to fewer bids for attention, and have lower-quality interactions with the children in their care when a television (TV) is on in the room with them. As screens become more portable and instantly accessible through the widespread use of mobile devices (e.g., smartphones and tablet computers), the potential for interruption of family interactions by media is heightened.“
