• The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend television or computer use for children under that age of two and limited TV viewing, computer use and video games for children under the age of six

• Many of us are visual learners. Over 90 percent of all information that comes to our brains is visual

• Reading aloud to children is very important for many reasons—one of them is it helps a child’s self-esteem and reading ability

• If you do have any concerns about your child’s development, check with your local Intermediate School District (ISD). They have experts who can screen your child and offer advice.

Enjoy your child. They go through many stages and each stage is unique. Even everyday experiences contribute to a child’s development. Time spent with your child is always time well spent.
