Yes, I definitely agree that kids have too much screen time, and I cringe when parents are proud that their LO can do an ipad puzzle, start a movie etc.

However - I don't think screen time is a problem as long as it is balanced out. I have a DCB who loves TV, but he doesn't ask for it, he is happy when TV is on and happy when it is turned off, he wants to see my phone,but doesn't care when I say no. Screens are nothing more or less to him than all other toys, books and pastimes, just as I think it should be.

The baby in the video... They're giving him/her a toy that lights up and is fun, and then immidiately taking it away again even though s/he tries to hold on to it?? How did you expect him/her to react? I have had babies react the same way when someone takes their rattle/toy animal/block/anything they're holding on to...
