Charting Pediatrics

Jan 7, 2020

Is social media good or bad? How much or how little screen time should kids and adolescents have each day? What is the impact of screen time? What kind of digital footprint or reputation are parents creating for their children?

These questions and more are covered with our guests Jenny Radesky, MD and Michael Rich, MD who discuss social media and its impact on patients and families.

Dr. Radesky is a Developmental/Behavioral Pediatrician whose research focuses on family digital media use, child social/emotional development, and parent-child interaction.

Dr. Rich is the Director of the Center on Media and Child Health at Boston Children’s Hospital. He has developed media-based research methodologies and authored numerous papers and AAP policy statements, testified to the United States Congress, and makes regular national press appearances.
