Navigating Screen and Media Use During a Pandemic and Beyond


Volume 41 No 2

The past 9 months of living through a global pandemic have driven families out of public places, including child care settings and schools, doctor’s offices, libraries, and play spaces. Furthermore, social distancing has isolated children and families from friends, extended family members, and informal interaction in the community. As a result, screen media and related technology has taken center stage as a way to maintain relationships, provide entertainment, and obtain services such as health care and early intervention. The collection of articles in this issue provide a timely discussion of what we know about screen and media in the lives young children, what we need to better understand, and how professionals who work with children and families are providing high-quality care despite unprecedented challenges.
