Chip Donohue, director of the Technology in Early Childhood Center, talked with Howard Ludwig for a Southtown Star article about the effects of parents using digital devices to keep their young children occupied.
While Donohue encouraged parents to be mindful of their children’s screen-time exposure and to engage with them when using digital devices, he also acknowledged the devices are useful distractions when parents need a break.
“It’s only when technology gets in the way of human relationships — that’s when I get concerned,” Donohue said in the article.
